THE 
POLITICS 

OF 

NATIONAL 

GREATNESS 



by Franklin L. Burdette 
Professor and Director, Bureau of Governmental Research, University of Maryland 



CAN THE GREAT SOCIETY THAT PRESIDENT JOHNSON 
proposes, that is both the slogan and the label of his 
leadership, become political reality? The simple and even 
obvious truth is that no one knows, that many hope and 
believe, that everyone in America will be vastly affected, 
and that the outcome will be greatly different from the 
pattern that anyone could now draw. 

That a Great Society might need to be built is an im- 
plication which would have startled most Americans after 
World War I. A generation which had made the world safe 
for democracy was self-sufficient, isolationist, and com- 
placent in temper. Had not America already attained its 
greatness, lasting and inevitable? It has always been and 
is now characteristic of Americans that no significant 
groups have really doubted the national greatness or the 
promise of the future. There is a new mode, however — 
less satisfied but touched with rising moral purpose — just 
over the national horizon, emergent but not yet triumph- 
ant. It has been nurtured by a great series of cataclysmic 
episodes: depression, the rise of totalitarianism abroad, 
war both hot and cold, new and almost unbelievable 
reaches in science and technology, unprecedented surges 
of cultural and political expectations everywhere in the 
world. 



Americans have had a great society, but we must art 
to keep up with the times. That is the new imperative. 
But how shall we act? Seeing the need for action is an 
expression of national purpose. The nature and timing of 
action, the fixing of priorities and the allocation of re- 
sources are aspects of the grand strategy of deciding and 
guiding public policy. 



Strategies for the National Interest 

Guidelines for political action, or programs that require 
political endorsement at the highest level for implementa- 
tion were discernible in the campaign of 1964. The) 
could be summarized by the campaign slogan, "peace. 
prosperity, preparedness." The first and last of the three 
are so closely linked as to be almost one. "Peace through 
preparedness" is an oversimplified way of putting a com- 
plex but overriding national demand. Two essential el- 
ements of recent programs for national security have been 
maintenance of the world's most powerful nuclear deter- 
rent and of an effective Atlantic Alliance. Senator J. W. 
Fulbright, Chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee 
of the Senate, advocates a third element in the strategy oi 



March- April, 1965 



national security— the building of modest and limited 
"bridges of accommodation with the Communist world, 
not because this approach is inherently more desirable than 
one of total victory lor American interests but because 
there is no acceptable alternative in the nuclear age." Yet 
he favors continuance o( the nuclear deterrent and the Al- 
liance He s.ud at Southern Methodist University in De- 
cember: "These. I think, are the three bedrocks of our 
security: none would be an adequate policy by itself and 
each contributes to the effectiveness of the other." The 
Senator's suggestion about bridges of accommodation may 
presage changes in national policy. But it can also be in- 
corporated in other long-range supplements to security to 
which the United States is already committed in principle: 
the evolution and refinement of the United Nations and 
the world rule of law without resort to a superstate. 

Basic prosperity, with which the United States has been 
blessed in postwar years, is both a national demand and 
essential to the electoral survival of any administration or 
political party in office. It rests primarily on the produc- 
tivity of the free enterprise system. As Dean Rusk, Sec- 
retary of State, has said of the development of world 
trade, "the results we achieve will depend more heavily 
upon private enterprise than upon government." Mainten- 
ance of prosperity is highly complex, for it involves not 
only holding existing levels of achievement but also pos- 
itive progress in economic growth. An insufficient rate of 
economic growth has been for more than a decade an im- 
portant cause of pockets of poverty, deprivation, and un- 
employment. If a family income of $3,000 (or $1,500 
for individuals) is used as a minimum standard, about 
34 million people in the United States are living in poverty. 
Another 32 million, more or less, are living in deprivation 
by a standard of $5,000 for family income (or $2,500 
for single person). Moreover, the unemployment rate has 
been persistently over 5% of the civilian labor force. These 
conditions have deterred economic growth by leaving a 
huge gap in the potential market for goods and services. 
The tax reduction program of the national government has 
been intended to stimulate both consumption and in- 
vestment enterprise. The national anti-poverty program 
has been planned as a means of education and training 
for employment and also as a way of increasing consumer 
income and demand. 



Dr. Burdette is Professor 
and Director of the Bur- 
eau of Governmental Re- 
search at the University 
of Maryland, where he 
has taught since 1947. As 
Chief of the Information 
Center Service, U.S. In- 
formation Agency, 1954- 
56, he was responsible 
for administering cultural 
activities to overseas in- 
formation centers. He is 
the author of several vol- 
umes, including Political 
Parlies: An A merican 
Way, and editor of 23 
published books. Dr. Bur- 
dette holds degrees from 
Princeton University 
(A.M., Ph.D.), the Uni- 
versity of Nebraska 
(A.M.) and Marshall 
College (A.B., LL.D.). 




President Johnson's budget, submitted to Congress on 
January 25, 1965, proposed: (1) increases of federal 
funds for education, health, social security, the war on 
poverty, urban affairs, and conservation; (2) somewhat 
reduced expenses for defense, international and space pro- 
grams, agriculture, and veterans' benefits; and (3) a re- 
duction of about $1.75 billion in excise taxes. As could 
have been foreseen, the president has been criticized by 
some liberals for proposing expenditures too low to lift 
the economy rapidly upward, and by some conservatives 
for failing to effect possible economies in expenditure. The 
president's own sense of the politic has kept the budget 
below a $100 billion figure. 



Political Parties and the Stakes of Power 

The Democratic Party is now overwhelmingly the ma- 
jority party in this country. Over half of American adults 
identify themselves in some degree with it. The latest polls 
report that only some 25% of Americans consider them- 
selves Republicans. What we know of political behavior 
also suggests that party identification is the largest single 
factor in determining a voter's preference among candi- 
dates running for office in a partisan election. The dom- 
inance of the Democratic Party is likely to be changed 
only by a series of critical elections, as they are sometimes 
called, in which the primary allegiance of great numbers 
of voters is shifted. The election of 1896 brought a large 
change of voter allegiance from the Democratic to the 
Republican Party, which thereafter became basically dom- 
inant in American national politics for more than thirty 
years. The election of 1936 brought a mass shift in the 
other direction, although there are strong statistical evi- 
dences of growing voter preferences for the Democratic 
Partym the cities of the East, particularly in New England, 
as early as 1928. Even in a period of party dominance, 
the opposition may win a national election — and without 
a major change in voter allegiance. Woodrow Wilson was 
elected president in 1912 as a result of a split in Repub- 
lican ranks, and reelected on his record as an advocate of 
peace and progress. Eisenhower was elected in 1952 by 
voters weary of military stalmate in Korea and in tribute 
to his personal image as a leader above petty partisanship, 
a major factor in his reelection in 1956. 

In the past seventy years the major parties have had, in 
their respective periods of dominance, the primary loyalty 
of great numbers of industrial workers. As the modern 
Democratic Party has been the party of the New Deal and 
the Great Society, the Republican Party was once the 
party of the full dinner pail. 

If the lessons of the past have validity, the dominant 
party must exert progressive leadership for economic op- 
portunity and national development. If it loses that ad- 
vantage, it loses the allegiance of its voter majority. The 
greatest peril to a party is that it may lose its image of 
leadership, that it may become ossified in times of chang- 
ing conditions. 

The United States is rapidly changing, Not only is pop- 
ulation vastly expanding; it is becoming younger. The post- 
war birth rate is making the electorate, statistically, the 
youngest in the nation's history. It is also an educated 
electorate, with relatively high job and income security. 
With the exception of pockets of poverty and deprivation.

which may themselves give way to progress, economic 
issues are being pushed aside by demands for educational, 
recreational, and other cultural programs. The farm bloc 
and even organized labor, sure to remain politically im- 
portant in decades to come, are relatively less numerous 
in the electorate as automation and other technological 
changes tend to supersede unskilled and semi-skilled work- 
ers, whose electoral strength is being replaced by that 
of growing numbers of voters whose work is in middle 
management. As elemental economic considerations be- 
come less basic in predominant political motivation, moral 
and cultural aspirations become more so. It is surely no 
accident that the civil rights movement has come at such 
a time. Significant also is the fact that Negroes are turning 
from protest to politics. It is not lost in the minds of 
politicians that President Johnson's victory in four south- 
ern states depended on the votes of Negroes. 

Decisions of the Supreme Court on legislative appor- 
tionment and districting, widely affecting the politics of 
an urbanizing America, will have mixed repercussions for 
both majority and minority parties. The ultimate results 
may well force parties to be more rather than less adapt- 
able to changing circumstances, less rather than more 
sure of stable majorities. 

American mobility and the impact of mass communica- 
tions media have tended to nationalize the appeals and 
activities of both parties. The decline of localism — espe- 
cially in suburban areas and in spreading cities where 
voter identification with grassroots politics or even with 



community governmental services in minimal — has at the 
same time reduced the effective operation of permanent 
political organization. 

With all the winds of change, there is no sound evidence 
that the Republican Party will disappear. On the contrary, 
the present large majority of the Democrats holds a new 
invitation to factionalism and disunity, as did the large 
majority of the Republican Party in its day in power. The 
advantages of the two-party system, of the loyal opposi- 
tion (to use a favorite expression of former President 
Eisenhower) are deeply rooted in law and custom. The 
task of each party is to recruit and maintain responsible 
leadership, sensitive to the claims of progress, and much of 
the vigor and contribution of each of the parties will 
depend on how well it is done. The number of Americans 
who put party above country, or even above a central 
issue, is very small indeed. For an increasingly large num- 
ber of voters, partisanship is incidental. Voters not only 
hedge their partisanship by splitting tickets; many of them 
willingly support able candidates on individual merit. An 
educated electorate the more readily recognizes that the 
demagogue appeals to fragments rather to the whole of 
man's nature. In a society open to the participation of all 
its citizens, a society that we may properly call both 
free and great, it is the function of electorally responsible 
leadership to engage in political education and in the 
engineering of consent. The electoral rewards of respon- 
sibility have become more and more apparent in American 
politics. &

Maryland's New 

CENTER OF ADULT EDUCATION 



THE UNIVERSITY COLLEGE CENTER OF ADULT EDUCA- 
tion has become a reality. In the planning and con- 
struction stage since the early 1950's, this five-story build- 
ing now rises at the western end of the College Park 
campus. Clear evidence of Maryland's commitment to 
adult education, the Center is designed primarily to handle 
residential adult education of the non-degree type, such as 
conferences, seminars, workshops and institutes. All serv- 
ices of the Center are available to faculty, staff, and official 
guests of the University. The College Park Evening Divi- 
sion's classes will continue to be held at their usual campus 
locations. 

Planners designed the building for maximum effective- 
ness in the conducting of educational programs, but they 
did not ignore the fact that it would be a short-term home 
away from home for its residents. Each of the 116 guest 
rooms has twin-beds, private bath, phone, and individually 
controlled air conditioning and heating. These facilities 
are available to persons engaged in educational programs 
consonant with the aims and philosophy of the University. 

General facilities include an educational exhibit area, 
eight conference rooms accommodating 25 to 150 persons 
and multi-purpose rooms for 200-600 persons. Among 
the dining facilities are a coffee shop seating 80, and a 
formal dining room for 150. The dining room can be 
enlarged by opening an acoustical partition, increasing its 
capacity lor banquet functions to 540. In all, the building 
encompasses 109,462 square feet of floor space. Adjacent 
to the (enter is a parking area for 350 cars. 



8 



Audio-visual equipment for providing educational pres- 
entations in the conference rooms includes projection 
booths, light dimming controls, built-in projection screens, 
blackboards and magnetic chalk boards. There are also 
display panels, automatic slide projection and focusing 
controls at the front of each room, and public address 
systems allowing the transmission of audio from numerous 
sources. Supplementary speakers provide for balanced 
sound distribution. 

Throughout the building there are additional facilities 
to aid the learning process. Television capabilities provide 
reception of educational programs from the University's 
studio. Regular UHF and VHF broadcasts can be re- 
ceived. There is also a self-contained, closed circuit tele- 
vision potential for originating CCTV and sending it to 
all parts of the building. 

Decor in the public areas depicts the Maryland Heritage. 
Lobby furnishings are of the Regency period, while the 
dining room is done in Queen Anne style. 

Throughout the building paintings trace the history of 
transportation in Maryland. Typical scenes show the Ark 
and Dove, ships that brought the State of Maryland's 
founders to its shores; the Ann McKim, first ocean-going 
Baltimore Clipper Ship; and landscapes along the Ches- 
apeake and Ohio Canal. Also depicted are a Conestoga 
Wagon moving westward through the Cumberland Gap, a 
Baltimore-Washington stage coach, and scenes along the 
Baltimore and Ohio Railroad.

The Constellation Room, a formal dining room, is 
named for the Baltimore built frigate which is the oldest 
United States naval vessel still afloat and which was once 
the flagship of our Atlantic Fleet. The large banquet room 
is the Fort McHenry Room, honoring the Baltimore Fort 
where Francis Scott Key was inspired to write The Star 
Spangled Banner. This event took place during Baltimore's 
period of crisis in the War of 1812. 

The coffee shop and Constellation Room look out, 
through opposite glass walls, into a colonial garden. This 
garden is surrounded on all four sides by the Center's 
wall, but is open to the sky. It contains lawn, trees and 
shrubs as well as a brick walkway and electrically il- 
luminated fountain. 

The large kitchen contains complete facilities for all 
phases of food service, and is managed by the Center's 
own staff. In one of its operations it prepares the fresh 
baked pies, cakes and breads which are served to guests. 

In providing adult education opportunities for the 
citizens of Maryland and military personnel of the nation, 
University College has operated as a self-supporting pro- 
gram. It is one of the few state university programs oper- 
ated without annual legislative financial support. 

The major criticism of University College by the Middle 
States Accrediting Association, in its otherwise generous 
report of the College in 1954, was that it should be doing 
more in the area of short-term "non-credit" courses and 
special programs for adults. 

Immediate remedial steps were taken and by 1957 the 
basic plans were developed for the center that exists today. 
Beginning in 1957 specific funds were designated for the 
construction of the Center. 

During the 1960 and 1961 Sessions of the General As- 
sembly, the plan to build such a center was discussed with 
the House Ways and Means Committee. Also discussed 
in detail at these sessions was the plan to use University 
College funds in the interim, until the Center of Adult 
Education could be constructed, as the principal source 
of funds to allow the University to meet not less than 
one-half the cost of each new dormitory constructed at 
College Park. 

The cost per square foot for the building was $17.47. 
The cost per square foot for equipment and furnishings 
was $3.11. 

These remarkably low costs were obtained as a result 
of long-term careful planning by a group of dedicated per- 
sons who thoroughly understood the functional needs of an 
adult education center. Few buildings that are constructed 
to have a useful life of 50 years or longer are constructed 
at costs this low. 

The University of Maryland is the tenth largest univer- 
sity in the U.S. Eight of these institutions have residential 
Centers of Adult Education. 1 A recent study revealed the 
existence of 50 such Centers, and plans on the part of 15 
other institutions to build Centers within the next four 
years. 

As a result of the Center's construction, the University 
of Maryland is attracting scholars and citizens who could 
not be accommodated heretofore. Recently theoretical 



1 California, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, Ohio State, Indiana, 
Michigan State, and Maryland. City University of New York and 
Stale University of New York do not have centers by virtue of 
their organization as consolidations of many widely scattered 
campuses. 



physicists from the Eastern U.S., including 3 Nobel 
Prize winners, met for 3 days in the Center; forty 
mathematicians attended a symposium on analog simu- 
lation and engineering analysis; in the future the Cen- 
ter will house such diversified activities as a National 
Carrot Breeders' Institute and key persons among 6,000 
members of the American Institute of Biological Sciences 
who will use all of the facilities in the College Park area. 
Within the next three months more programs will be held 
in the Center than were held during the entire year, 1964. 
The large number of individuals attracted by the pro- 
grams of the Center will have a measurable impact not 
only upon the academic stature of the University but also 
upon the economy of the local area and the State. Mary- 
land citizens may be justifiably proud of the real and po- 
tential benefits of this new venture in adult education. 

The Center is also destined to be a meeting place for 
alumni organizations. The Center was the gathering place 
for 125 engineering alumni, their wives, guests and stu- 
dent leaders from the College of Engineering who attended 
the Engineering Mid-Winter Dinner on February 4. The 
program was headed by President Sy Wolf, '42, who, after 
a brief word of welcome and presentation of the guests at 
the head table, introduced Dean Frederic T. Mavis of the 
College of Engineering. 

Dean Mavis commented on the close working relation- 
ship between his office and the Engineering Alumni Board. 
President Elkins followed with a brief "state of the Uni- 
versity" message. He indicated that enrollment at the Uni- 
versity has increased 100 percent in the last five years and 
that the University must constantly strive to maintain 
quality. He added that the alumni can be of great service 
in helping the University to attract its fair share of out- 
standing high school students. In conclusion, Dr. Elkins 
stated that one of the major problems of the future is in 
recruiting and holding the best possible faculty. 

Tracy Coleman, '35, gave a report on the status of 
FEEDUM indicating that the program is nearly ready to 
begin its general solicitation. FEEDUM is a project spon- 
sored by the engineering alumni to provide funds from 
engineers for use by the College of Engineering. 

Sy Wolf, with the help of Mrs. Erna Chapman, Pres- 
ident of the Alumni Association, awarded certificates of 
appreciation to the 15 past presidents of the Engineering 
Alumni Chapter. Those who attended and received the 
awards were: C. V. Koons, '29; Fred Cutting, '34; S. 
Chester Ward, '32; John C. Dye, '34; Joseph H. Deckman, 
'31; Charles R. Hayleck, Jr., '43; Robert M. Rivello, '43; 
Robert J. McLeod, '37; Emmett T. Loane, '29; and Tracy 
Coleman, '35. Unable to attend were: Theodore Vandoren, 
'25; Col. O. H. Saunders, '10; C. A. Warthen, '08; Dudley 
Taylor, '5 1 and Ben Dyer, '3 1 . 

The high point of the evening was an excellent presen- 
tation on the United States space program by the guest 
speaker, Bastian Hello, Engr. '42. Mr. Hello is an engineer 
and project manager with the Martin Company and is 
directly concerned with the Gemini space program. With 
the aid of descriptive color slides, Mr. Hello in an interest- 
ing manner outlined the Gemini program, its preparations, 
hardware, launch vehicle, problems and objectives. He 
related the project to the Mercury space flights and the 
planned Apollo moon flight. The information gained from 
Gemini in the problem areas of extended time in space 
and the intricate rendezvousing of two vehicles in space 
will add to the safety and success of Apollo. A stimulating 
question and answer period followed the lecture. J*

ERIC LAMPE 



OLAF DROZDOV, THREE LETTERMAN IN TRACK, WRESTLING AND FOOTBALL 




Inside Maryland Sports 

by Bill Dismer 
Director of Sports Information 



WITH AN ADEQUATE NUCLEUS OF LETTERMEN ON EACH 
of the five teams, two of which won Atlantic Coast 
Conference championships last year and a third shared anoth- 
er, the outlook is extremely bright for followers of Terrapin 
Spring sports. 

Of great interest are the schedules which list 51 of the 73 
events for College Park fields including 18 baseball games, 
ten lacrosse contests, ten golf and ten tennis matches. And 
Maryland's track team, which has won ten of the eleven 
championships which have been at stake since the ACC was 
formed, will be at home on two occasions — against North 
Carolina in a dual meet and as host to the District A.A.U. 

In addition to Coach Jim Kehoe's thinclads, Maryland's 
defending ACC champions are Coach Doyle Royal's tennis 
squad and Frank Cronin's golfers (co-champs with South 
Carolina). Royal has five lettermen back and Cronin three. 

And, despite their "also-ran" ranking of 1964, Coach Al 
Heagy's lacrosse team is expected to challenge Virginia's right 
to the title it won last year while Coach Jack Jackson's base- 
ballers could make a bid for the diamond crown. The latter 
surprised with a 10-9 record last year, good enough for 
third place in the Conference. This year there are indications 
the record will be even better, especially with three-fourths 
of the schedule being played in the friendly confines of Shipley 
Field. A staff of six southpaws, all potential starters, adds 
to the fascination of the diamond picture. 

Although record-hitting Jimmy Pitt (.460 last year) has 
left school to join the pro ranks, Coach Jackson will have 
both of his catchers, Bill Siedling and Bob McCarthy, back 
as well as outfielders Bob Isaacson and Mike Long and second 
baseman Tom Bichy. Phil Petry, Maryland's quarterback last 
year, has been excused from spring grid drills in order to 
permit him to pitch for the ball team. 

Fourteen lettermen in lacrosse undoubtedly have encircled 
April 17 on their calendars as that is the date that Virginia 
will come to College Park for its annual game with the Terps. 
Ordinarily, the Cavaliers are not one of Maryland's eagerly 
anticipated opponents, but the stickmen can't forget last year's 
debacle down at Charlottesville when Virginia's team broke 
Maryland's clean record of seven straight with an unexpected 



13-3 victory on its home field. The season starts for Heagy's 
men on March 20 — the first athletic contest of the Spring for 
any Maryland team. Two even more important dates for the 
lacrosse team are May 1 and May 15. Army, one of three 
teams to beat Maryland last year, comes here on the 1st 
while traditional rival Johns Hopkins will be the Terps' last 
stick opponent on the 15th. 

Maryland's all-time high scorer in lacrosse, Bill Pettit, 
will be missing but Bob Newkirk, Pete Smith, Bob Rombro 
and John Kenworthy all will be back. 

The lacrosse team's all-time record of 286 victories, 70 
defeats and three ties probably is the best overall record of 
any Maryland athletic team over the years. Lacrosse began 
as a varsity sport here in 1924. 

Jim Busick, a senior who won ten of his twelve singles 
matches last year, undoubtedly will be the tennis team's 
Number One player again with lettermen Vaughan Baker, 
Lou Dobies, Roger Flax and Len Modzelewski figuring to 
see a lot of action. Last year, when the racketers became the 
second Terp net team in history to break North Carolina's 
stranglehold on ACC tennis titles (Maryland's 1957 team 
was the other) they were extended in only three of their 14 
matches. Carolina, George Washington and Clemson were 
beaten by only 5-4 decisions; remaining matches were decided 
from scores of 6-3 to 9-0 with six coming by the whitewash 
method. 

Frank Herrelko and Bob McFerren will be the only 
lettermen golfers returning, but the latter led the squad last 
year with a 12-1-1 record. The linksmen will inaugurate their 
season at home on March 27 against Dartmouth, carrying 
into the opener a record of 40 consecutive matches at home 
in which they have been undefeated. A tie with Virginia 
(there's that jinx again!) mars an otherwise all-winning slate. 

Probably the biggest date of all this spring will be the 
renewal of the annual Varsity-Alumni spring football game, 
scheduled for May 8 in Byrd Stadium under the spon- 
sorship of the "M" Club. There's plenty of optimism re- 
garding the 1965 season and Coach Tom Nugent and his 
staff can hardly wait to get started. Losses by graduation 
were few from the 1964 team which finished strong with 
three straight victories for a 5-5 record when it looked 
as if the Terps were destined for their second straight losing 
season and Nugent is authority for the statement that he 
expects nearly four dozen top-flight players to be in uniform 
for the big opener with Penn State next September 18. The 
prospect of three home games with the Nittany Lions, Ohio 
University and Syracuse opening the schedule has a lot of 
Old Line followers chaffing at the bit until they can order 
their season tickets.

The Maryland Magazinf 



It's entirely possible that something extra-special will be 
announced for the spring game, but final plans haven't quite 
jelled and we're pledged to secrecy until they do. It the) 
develop, Byrd Stadium could be the scene of a regular season- 
game crowd on May 8. More anon. 

A Maryland alumnus. Bill Elias, Ed. '48, Phys. Ed. "56, has 
been appointed head football coach at Navy. Elias was head 
coach at George Washington in 1960 and has served in that 
capacity at Virginia since 1961. 

Seems strange without the Charmichael Cup (symbolic of 
supremacy in varsity sports in the ACC) around the Field 
House this year, but if Maryland teams keep winning, the 
cup — which we lost to North Carolina last year by half a 
point — is headed back for College Park. At this point it 
looks good for us. The final tally will be made in June — at 
the close of the academic year. 

Inside Maryland Sports would like to take you around to 
talk to some of the coaches and see how the teams have done, 
will do, and are doing. First, we'll learn more about a man 
that Coaches Jim Kehoe, Tom Nugent, and "Sully" Krouse 
are all proud of; then drop in on "Jack" Jackson and see 
how things shape up in the world of college baseball, and 
lastly peek in to see Coach Bill Campbell and give credit 
where credit is due. 

Coaches Nugent, Krouse, and Kehoe have been astounded 
by this New Jersey lad for several seasons now. His name? 
Olaf Drozdov, the first three letterman since Tommy Mont, 
who has been a real standout in the track, football and 
wrestling picture for three years at College Park. An All- 
Conference lineman for the Terps, Olaf hopes to become a 
coach upon graduation. The Physical Education major is 
also an officer in the student "M" Club. When the football 
season ends, the big gridder turns in his helmet for his 
wrestling gear. Olaf has turned out to be the grappler's num- 
ber one heavyweight in 1965. He pulled double-duty on 
February 27 when he went to Chapel Hill to wrestle North 
Carolina, then dropped over to Raleigh to take part in the 
A.C.C. Track Meet. He is Coach Kehoe's top discus thrower. 
Last year he was the DCAAU Champ in the discus and 
runner-up in the shot. Against the University of North Car- 



olina, oi.ii set .i school record when he heaved ih< 
155' <>'. . 

Now, L-i's drop in and see how things are on the baseball 
scene. Coach 'Jack Jacluon't I 1 "'" rerp Baseball l< 
looks to be the finest group ol ball players evci the 

Red and White. 

Alter a 10-9 1964 season, the lerps show i better 

things to come, I lie Mat \ hinders had Unit ol die- top ten 
hitters in the Atlantic ( oast ( onleieiice last \eai Jim I'itt 

and Bo Johnson are absent from this year's squad, but Inn 
Bichj (.315) and Bill Siedling (.314) return from last >. 
A.C.C. top ten. 

Besides Bichy and Siedling, Mike I ong, a hard-hitting out- 
fielder from Cumberland, Md., and Ike Isaacson, a scra|i|i\ 

outfielder from Washington. I)( . will be returning; to help 

bolster the I erp attack. 

Bill Franklin, known also on the basketball COUTt, and I 
Kressig, a senior, will be kc\ figures in the infield this season 

A host of sophomores headed bj such familiar names as 
Phil Petry, Maryland's number one quarterback and quite 
a pitcher, and Fred Cooper, a defensive back on the gridiron 
and a catcher, could he a regular batters pair lor Jackson s 
boys. 

Other outstanding sophomores are outfielders (uis Sclafani, 
Jim McMillan, and infielders Larry l)a\is and Paul Breslou 
Dick Wright, Brad Frost and Jerry Bark are sophs, who will 
help support last year's pitching stall. I he only veteran 
hurlers for the Terps are Chris Sole, Jim Fowler and l.arr\ 
Butts. 

Alumni attending the Spring Reunion. May 15, should see 
a whale of a game — a double-header, in fact, with Penn State. 

The swimming season came to a close February 27. I his 
year we heard a lot about Phil Denkevitz, "Doc'" Dunphy. and 
Raoul Rebillard, but little was heard of two of the tankers' 
key standouts. Bill Nullmeyer and Eric Lampe. 

Swimming second only to Phil Denkevitz in the 50 and 
100 yard freestyle, Lampee has been a consistent point getter 
for Coach Campbell all year. Eric, who hails from Eric. Pa., 
is a junior at Maryland. He is joined by another junior. Null- 
meyer. Bill is from Rockville, Md., and has been a consistent 
winner in the 200 and 500 yard freestyle events. &

ing Director of Home Economics for 
the District of Columbia public schools, 
and Turner G. Timberlake, Chief of 
Engineers for the U S. Army at Bel- 
voir, Virginia, will be two of only eight 
national winners of the 4-H Alumni 
Gold Key Award for 1965. 

They will receive their awards, in- 
cluding an all-expense trip to Chicago, 



14 



The Maryland Magazine 



at the 44th National 4-H Club Congress 
next November. 

A Ciambrills, Anne Arundel County 
resident, Mrs. Chapman is President of 
the University of Maryland Alumni As- 
sociation. The former 4-H'er raised 
chickens and was named Maryland 4-H 
Health Champion before beginning 
studies at the College Park Campus. 

Working her way through school, the 
honor student received both her bach- 
elor's and master's degrees in home 
economics. She later taught in the 
College of Home Economics. 

She also was an instructor in home 
economics at Jefferson Junior High and 
Roosevelt High in Washington, D. C, 
before assuming her present post in 
which she supervises 139 teachers in 
42 schools. 

Mrs. Chapman served on the faculty 
at Roosevelt High for 20 years, first as 
teacher and subsequently was elevated 
to Assistant Principal. In 1961 she was 
made Supervising Director for Home 
Economics in the D. C. public schools. 

Also the state director of home eco- 
nomics for the District of Columbia 
under the Department of Health, Edu- 
cation and Welfare, Mrs. Chapman is a 
nationwide speaker on nutrition, careers, 
and trends in home economics. 

A consultant to government agencies 
on problems dealing with family living, 
proper foods, consumer education, and 
the urban attack on poverty, she has 
given special attention to motivating 
lower-income persons, including unwed 
mothers. One of her training programs 
is at Howard University where adults 
are taught to be "housing care aides." 

Continuing her interest in 4-H, she 
is working toward the expansion of 
this one-time rural youth group into 
city and suburban areas. 

Married to Ray F. Chapman, Erna 
lives with her husband in a 200-year- 
old house that they converted into a 
modern home. 

Summertime may find Mrs. Chapman 
tending the farm. "The outdoor life is 
part of the reason I'm so healthy," she 
says. 

If it wasn't for Turner G. Timber- 
lake's, Engr. '41, 4-H membership as a 
boy in Harford County, he never would 
have gone to college and become an 
engineer. 

After his high school graduation, Mr. 
Timberlake began work during the de- 
pression as a laborer for a road con- 
struction company. He had little hope 
of attending college until a $200 schol- 
arship he won for his 4-H electrical 
project enabled him to enroll at the 
University of Maryland as an engineer- 
ing student. 

More scholarships and part-time 
work helped him complete his studies 
with honors while he also distinguished 
himself in athletics, journalism, and 
the Reserve Officers Training Corps 
(ROTC). 



Service in the l . s \n m during 
World Wai II and ihe Korean conflict 
earned him three battle stare, .. ( om- 
mendation Ribbon and a I egion ol 

Merit. 

As duel ol the Mechanical 

neering Department ol the l S Aims 

Engineer Research and Development 
Laboratory at Ion Belvoir, Mr. Inn 
berlake was awarded a Secretary ol the 
Army Research and Study Fellowship 
in 1959. 

Both his military and civilian duties 
have taken him to 1 urope and the 
Ear Hast and through the United States 

In his present position since 1961, 
he has won the Department ol the 
Army Outstanding Performance award 
for three consecutive years 

Married to the former Helen Bryan 
and the lather of two teenage daughters, 
Christine and Diana. Mr. Timberlake 
holds the rank of I.t. Colonel in the 
Army Reserve. 

The public-spirited Alexandria resi- 
dent has helped raise funds to build a 
hospital and assist the Boy Scouts, PTA 
and Little League as well as 4-H Clubs. 

The other national winners of the 
4-H Alumni Gold Key are: 

Miss Gertrude Drinker, chief of the 
Education Programs branch. Foreign 
Training division, USDA; Paul W. 
Rose, development officer, U. S. Agency 
for International Development in Iran; 
Congressman John F. Baldwin (R.,

University of California at Davis; Dr. 
James H. Hilton, president of Iowa 
State University; Mary Merryfield, au- 
thor, radio-TV personality and news- 
paper columnist, Chicago. 

Education Alumni Meet 

The Board of Directors of the Educa- 
tion Alumni held a business meeting 
prior to the Brechbill Lecture on Jan- 
uary 18. The main order of business 
was a discussion of alumni support in 
furnishing an alumni lounge for stu- 
dents in the new Education Building. It 
was decided to give the full backing of 
the Education Alumni to raise the nec- 
essary funds for the lounge. 

The board joined approximately 250 
other guests at the Sixth Henry Brech- 
bill Lecture given in the Fort McHenry 
Room of the Center of Adult Educa- 
tion. Dr. R. Lee Hornbake, Vice Pres- 
ident for Academic Affairs, presided at 
the meeting. Dean Vernon Anderson of 
the College of Education introduced the 
speaker, Dr. Jules Henry, Professor of 
Anthropology and Sociology at Wash- 
ington University. Dr. Henry spoke on 
"Vulnerability in Education." 

After the lecture, it was announced 
that Professor Henry Brechbill, in 
whose memory the lecture series is 
given, has been named Professor Emer- 
itus. Following the lecture, a reception 
was held and refreshments were served.

Dr. Kuhn is Named as 
Vice President - Baltimore 

Albin O. Kuhn will bring a "baker's 
dozen'* of talent, experience and per- 
sonality into his new position as Uni- 
versity of Maryland vice president in- 
charge of the Baltimore professional 
schools and the university's new center 
in Baltimore County. 

His promotion culminates ten years 
of working with university officials in 
planning the physical refurbishing and 
expansion of the university's six profes- 
sional schools — a $20 million project 
now in its second of three phases as part 
of Baltimore's downtown urban redevel- 
opment — and establishing the UMBC 
campus scheduled to open in September 
1966. 

The appointment will enable the en- 
ergetic, 49-year-old educator and ad- 
ministrator to guide these plans into 
reality more closely and add another 
chapter of outstanding contributions to 
the State of Maryland during his 31- 
year association with the university. 

Dr. Kuhn was an outstanding student 
at the University of Maryland and ob- 
tained a bachelor of science degree with 
first honors in agricultural education 
and a master of science degree in ag- 
ronomy. He was appointed instructor in 
1939 and assistant professor in 1941 in 
the agronomy department. Between 
1944 and 1946 he served as a line 
officer in the U. S. Naval Reserve in 
the Far East. He returned to College 
Park as an associate professor. 

The university vice president com- 
pleted requirements for a doctoral de- 
gree in 1948 at Maryland, with graduate 
work at both the University of Wiscon- 
sin and Maryland. During the same 
year he was appointed full professor 
and head of the Maryland department 
of agronomy. 

His basic training in genetics and 
physiology were translated to crop sci- 
ence in his classroom teaching of under- 
graduate and graduate students and in 
directing theses research at the graduate 
level. 

His ability as a teacher was recog- 
nized early. He was one of four faculty 
members to receive awards for excel- 
lence in teaching in 1950. 

University of Maryland President 
Wilson H. Elkins appointed him assist- 
ant to the president in 1955 and two 
years later promoted him to executive 
vice president. 

One of the most familiar university 
figures to Maryland citizens, Dr. Kuhn 
travels thousands of miles annually to 
speak before organizations throughout 
the State. He speaks on a wide range of 
topics, but most often on the develop- 
ment and progress of the university 
which he describes as a "growing insti- 
tution that never loses sight of the in- 
dividual." 




Dr. Kuhn maintains a demanding 
work schedule and usually is the first 
to arrive on campus in the morning and 
the last to leave at night. He has the 
reputation for being a perfectionist. His 
vitality, self-confidence and tireless ap- 
proach to his job inspires a similar re- 
sponse from students, faculty and staff. 

Those closest to him say that his 
sunny, even temperament, a trademark, 
is never discarded, even behind closed 
doors. He has never been known to 
lose his temper. 

Proud of his "country boy" heritage 
— he was born in Woodbine, Carroll 
County and raised on a 215-acre dairy 
and general crop farm in Howard 
County — Dr. Kuhn somehow finds time 
to successfully operate a farm near his 
birthplace. 

"Farming is a family project, with 
everyone sharing in the partnership," 
he explains. 

The family includes his wife, Libby; 
Philip, 22, a Maryland graduate cur- 
rently teaching in Prince George's 
County and studying for a graduate de- 
gree in history at the university; Joseph, 
20, on duty with the U. S. Navy; Roger, 
16, a student at Northwestern High 
School who will enter the university in 
the fall; and the twins, Albin, II, and 
Lois, 15, both students at Northwestern 
High School. 

In addition to his administrative 
duties with the university. Dr. Kuhn 
serves as a member of the Board of 
Directors of the Maryland Hospital 
Cost Analysis Service and secretary of 
the Board of Trustees of the Maryland 
Blue Cross. 

He plans to move his office to the 
downtown Baltimore campus of the 
university July 1st.

The goal for the School of library 
Science is to be in operation by the 
opening of the 1965 Fall term. This 
involves the recruitment ol five faculty 
members, the development of a cur- 
riculum, the purchase of furniture, the 
selection of $20,000 worth of reference 
materials, and the clearance of the pro- 
gram with the (iraduate Council and 
with the committee on programs, cur- 
ricula and courses. 



Dental School Celebrates 
Its 125th Anniversary 

The 125th anniversary of the founding 
of the Baltimore College of Dental Sur- 
gery of the University of Maryland, the 
first dental school in the world, was 
celebrated March 4, 5, and 6, 1965. in 
Baltimore. 

This event has unique historical sig- 
nificance for the entire nation because 
dental education is the only major 
branch of higher education that orig- 
inated here — medicine and law, for ex- 
ample, were both imported from abroad. 

The anniversary program reviewed 
the history of dentistry and contrasted 
the crude practices that were possible 
before dentistry became a profession 
with the modern equipment and tech- 
niques, new approaches to teaching 
dentistry, and current research. 

Dr. Horace H. Hayden and Dr. 
Chapin A. Harris, who founded the 
school in 1840, were honored by estab- 
lishment of the Hayden-Harris Memor- 
ial Lectureship. The secretary of the 
American Dental Association, Dr. Har- 
old Hillenbrand, delivered the first lec- 
ture of this series on the opening day. 
His subject was "The Past is Prologue." 

Other participants in Thursday's 
meeting were Cardinal Lawrence J. 
Shehan, who delivered the invocation, 
the Honorable Theodore R. McKeldin. 
who welcomed guests. Major General 
Joseph L. Bernier, who spoke on pre- 
ventive dentistry, seven dental school 
deans (five of them alumni of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland), and a number of 
other leading educators in dentistry and 
related health sciences. 

Dr. John J. Salley. dean of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland School of Dentistry, 
reported plans for the school's new $9 
million building on Friday. Governor

Historical displays included such 
items as — 

• George Washington's false teeth. 

made ol carved ivory by 
John Greenwood, his dentist, 

and now owned by the dental 

museum oi the l diversity ol 

Mary land. 

• Reproductions ol longhand cor- 

respondence between G© 

Washington and Dr. Green- 

wood. 

• The first license to practice den- 

tistry, issued in 1810 to Hoi 
ace Hayden, one ol the found- 
ers oi the Baltimore ( ollege 
of Dental Surgery < now pan 
of the University of Mary- 
land). 

• The first D.D.S. degrees ever 

granted, to the first two grad- 
uates oi the Baltimore (ol- 
lege of Dental Surgery. 

• The charter of the Baltimore 

College of Dental Singers, 
granted in 1840 by the Mary- 
land General Assembly. 

Participants in the anniversary cel- 
ebration saw not only reminders of the 
dental profession's beginnings in Balti- 
more 125 years ago. but main evidences 
of the promise dentistry holds for the 
future. 

A glimpse of the future was gained, 
for example, by a visit to the school's 
new general practice clinic — eight units 
outfitted with the latest equipment from 
various manufacturers. The clinic is ,i 
testing ground not only for the new 
equipment, with an eye to its usefulness 
in the new building, but also for the 
school's new approach to clinical dental 
education, which will influence the de- 
sign of the new building. 

Other factors that will shape the fu- 
ture of dental education and practice 
were explored in the panel discussion — 
socioeconomic trends affecting dental 
education and dental practice, psycho- 
somatic aspects oi dentistry, and the 
impact of specialization on dentistry. 

The ladies entertainment committee 
under the direction oi Katharine loo- 
nies sponsored a luncheon and fashion 
show on Thursday. 

Dr. Kyrle Preis was general chair- 
man oi the program.

Phi Beta Kappa 
Taps Two Alumni 

In recognition of outstanding contribu- 
tions in their respective fields, two 
alumni faculty members became the 
first honorary members of the Univer- 
sity's new chapter of Phi Beta Kappa 
at the chapter installation on December 
1 6. They are Dr. Charles E. White, pro- 
fessor and head of the department of 
chemistry and an expert on fluoremetric 
analysis, and Dr. Michael J. Pelczar, 
professor of microbiology and a prolific 
writer in his field. 

One of the Nation's leading histor- 
ians, Dr. Richard B. Morris of Colum- 
bia University, was the key speaker at 
the installation. His topic was, "How 
the American Revolution Was Won." 

In his address, Professor Morris re- 
examined the tactics and achievements 
of America's diplomats at the first peace 
conference in which this Nation was 
ever involved, the one conducted in 
Paris in 1782-83, by which the rebel- 
lious colonies obtained their independ- 
ence. The speaker cited some of the 
lessons that diplomats today can learn 
from studying these negotiations: (1) 
the advantage of having the country 
represented by top-level talent; (2) the 
advantage of allowing a considerable 
measure of discretion to our pleni-po- 
tentiaries; (3) the advantages of both 
speed and secrecy in such operations; 
and (4) the importance of standing on 
the high ground of principle. 

"Unlike the two great peace settle- 
ments of the twentieth century following 
the two World Wars which have proved 
to have settled very little indeed, the 
peace which ended the American Revo- 
lution not only gave America her in- 
dependence but foresaw and, in fact, 



made possible the future territorial 
growth of the country, along with its 
ability to survive and prosper," Pro- 
fessor Morris remarked. 

The speaker paid particular attention 
to the role of John Jay in the peace 
negotiations, drawing upon his resources 
as editor of the John Jay Papers, a proj- 
ect currently being pursued at Columbia 
University for the purpose of assem- 
bling and publishing in part the cor- 
respondence of Jay, who was the Sec- 
retary of Foreign Affairs during the 
Confederation, as well as the first Chief 
Justice of the Supreme Court. Dr. Mor- 
ris evaluated the role of power politics 
and national interest that governed the 
diplomacy of European monarchies, and 
depicted the negotiations as a dramatic 
confrontation of the Old Order and the 
New. He showed how the European 
belligerents were prepared to end the 
war on terms which would not have 
created a viable state in America, and 
how a combination of military victory 
on the American battlefields and vigilant 
diplomacy in Europe frustrated these 
maneuvers. 

Dr. Morris began his scholarly career 
at the College of the City of New York 
where, in 1924, he received his B.A. 
He took his graduate work at Columbia, 
receiving his master's degree in 1925 
and his Ph.D. in 1930. From 1927 to 
1949, when he joined the Columbia 
faculty, he taught at CCNY. He was 
honored by CCNY last year as the 
recipient of the Townsend Harris Medal 
for achievement. 

The author of numerous books, the 
most recent volumes by Professor 
Morris are: Fair Trial; The American 
Revolutions: A Brief History; The Basic 
Ideas of Alexander Hamilton; and Ham- 
ilton and the Founding of the Nation. 
With fellow Columbia historian Henry 
Steele Commager, he is editor of the 



popular Encyclopedia of American His- 
tory. 

Only recently, the National Broad- 
casting Company consulted Dr. Morris 
for material for the first of its "Our 
American Heritage" series. 

Officers recently elected are Dr. 
Homer A. Schamp, Director, Molecular 
Physics, President; Dr. Dudley Dillard, 
Professor and Head of Economics, Vice 
President; Dr. Franklin D. Cooley, Pro- 
fessor of English, Historian; Dr. Emil 
Herrmann, Associate Professor, Depart- 
ment of Psychology, Secretary, and Dr. 
Lenora C. Rosenfield, Assistant Pro- 
fessor, Department of Foreign Lan- 
guages, Treasurer. 

While members are chosen primarily 
at the undergraduate level, charter pro- 
visions enable a Phi Beta Kappa chap- 
ter to nominate outstanding alumni who 
have made exceptional academic 
achievements. The chapter will hold 
elections for undergraduates in the 
Spring as well as those who graduated 
last August and February of this year. 



Professor Toll Named 
University President 

Professor John S. Toll, chairman of the 
department of physics and astronomy 
at the University of Maryland, will be- 
come president of the State University 
of New York at Stony Brook, Long 
Island, New York, next September 1, 
according to an announcement today 
by the Board of Trustees of the State 
University of New York. 

In response to a question as to why 
he will be leaving the University of 
Maryland, Dr. Toll said: "I am very 
happy at the University of Maryland 
and pleased with the rapid strides to- 



18 



The Maryland Magazine 



ward excellence that have been made 
here under Dr. Elkins' leadership. I 
would not contemplate leaving Mary- 
land except for a most unusual oppor- 
tunity. But the presidency of Stony 
Brook is the chance of a lifetime to 
lead in the development of a truly 
outstanding state university campus. 

"The University of Maryland has 
tremendous advantages in its excellent 
leadership and its faculty of high qual- 
ity. While much remains to be done, the 
University has already become an insti- 
tution of which the State of Maryland 
can be proud for its academic excellence 
and its role of educational focus in the 
State and the National Capital area. 
Many observers now recognize the Uni- 
versity of Maryland as one of the na- 
tion's most promising public institutions 
of higher education. It was thus natural 
that the State of New York would look 
to the University of Maryland faculty 
when searching for a university pres- 
ident. 

"In my new position at Stony Brook, 
I will be trying to follow the College 
Park example and to build an institution 
of a true community of scholars for 
teaching, research, and service to the 
region interacting with mutual benefit." 

Dr. Toll, who has served as head of 
the University of Maryland department 
of physics and astronomy since 1953, 
has made many outstanding contribu- 
tions to the University of Maryland. 
Under his direction, the University has 
assembled an outstanding faculty which 
enjoys an international reputation. Ap- 
proval for a grant of $3 million to 
construct a cyclotron was recently given 
by the Atomic Energy Commission to 
his department. 

During the past year, Dr. Toll served 
as president of the Phi Beta Kappa 
Association which successfully gained 
approval for the establishment of a 
university chapter of the national hon- 
orary fraternity at College Park.

Alumnus Mans Farm 
Machinery Exhibit in 
Zagreb, Yugoslavia 

Farmers of Yugoslavia learned how 
their American counterparts repair farm 
machinery at the International Trade 
Fair, at Zagreb. Responsible for this 
demonstration of international coopera- 
tion was Associate Professor Guy 
Gienger, Agr. '33, M.S. '36, Department 
of Agricultural Engineering at the Uni- 
versity. 

Prof. Gienger's activity was part of an 
exhibit sponsored by the U. S. Depart- 
ment of Commerce. The theme of the 
Fair was "Food from Field to Table." 
The Americans hired and trained six 
college students to demonstrate and 
translate; 23 American manufacturers 
contributed farm equipment and ma- 
chinery. Prior to the opening of the 
Fair, Prof. Gienger scoured the country- 
side, inviting farmers and cooperatives 
to furnish him with broken equipment 
which could be repaired in exhibition 
at the Fair. This on-the-spot demonstra- 
tion proved very popular; approximate- 
ly 60,000 persons visited the display 
daily. Here are some of Prof. Gienger's 
impressions of Yugoslavia: 

— all Americans in the Zagreb Con- 
sulate spoke Croatian. 
— 85 percent of all farm land is pri- 
vately owned and operated in small 
plots. 
— Yugoslavian cows are milked and 
used to pull equipment; they are 
also eaten for beef. 
— the Americans experienced no 
restriction on their movements 
through Yugoslavia; there were no 
"escorts." 
— state farms had no maintenance 



program; equipment w.is used until 
damaged beyond repair and then 
discarded. 

-the work day begins at 7 a.m. and 
ends at 2 p.m.. with no lunch 
period, six days a week. At 5 p.m. 
downtown Zagreb is crowded with 
families shopping. 



Alumnus Paints Scenes of 
Tragedy in Vietnam 

Two decades after graduating cum 
laude from the College of Home Eco- 
nomics. '45, Cay Weston Drachnik has 
returned — not in her graduate field, but 
as an artist — an artist whose paintings 
portray the poignant feelings of the 
troubled times in Vietnam. 

For two years. Cay with husband. 
Navy Captain Joseph B. Drachnik. and 
their two children, lived with the ten- 
sions and the dangers of war-ridden 
Saigon, while Capt. Drachnik served as 
Chief of the Navy Section. Military 
Advisory Assistance Group. 

Mrs. Drachnik. service wile extra- 
ordinaire, has taken advantage of her 
travels in this country and abroad, to 
study under noteworthy contemporary 
painters and to broaden her artistic 
horizons. Twenty-seven of her Vietnam 
oils were recently on exhibit at the Lee 
Gallery in Alexandria. According to 
Gallery officials, her p. Millings drew the 
largest crowds ever — main of them re- 
turning for a second and third visit 

Most of her paintings are oi street 
peddlers. lonely children and refugees, 
but two canvases deal with material 
from yesterday's headlines. She had the 
unique opportunity of being in Saigon 
during an historic epic . . . she was 
present during the bombing of the Pres- 



March- April, 1965 



19 



idential Palace, the self-immolation of 
Buddhist monks and the fiery excite- 
ment of two coups. 

Sadness and tension are the words 
she use- most often when speaking of 
Saigon. Her paintings convey the empti- 
ness of the poor peoples lives and por- 
tray the mystery of street scenes at dawn 
and in the rain where automobile head- 
lights become frightening eyes. 

Buddhist Prayers for a Martyred 
Bonze is a quiet study of three Buddhist 
women offering prayers before the heart 
o\ the bonze who committed suicide by 
burning himself on a Saigon street. 
Another painting aptly titled Child of 
War tugs at the heart strings ... it 
shows a little three-year-old girl, the 
only survivor in her family following 
a bombing. 

Complexities of a Personality is a 
symbolic portrait of Madam Nhu in a 
black mourning dress against a fiery 
background with four arms like the 
Hindu god Shiva, the creator and 
destroyer. 

Reminiscing about Vietnam, Mrs. 
Drachnik said, "Sometimes, I would be 
painting in my studio and I would hear 
the bombs going off in the city, but 
there wasn't anything one could do 
except go on painting." She continued, 
"My greatest concern during my two 
years in Vietnam was for my daughter, 
Denise, now 12, and my son, Kenneth, 
now 7." 

Answering our obvious question, she 
remarked, "Yes, I was glad to go — I'd 
had enough grenadings, coups and 
bombings to last me quite a while — you 
can live in the midst of violence as long 
as you accept it, but it's strange — you 
don't notice the tension until you get 
away from it." 

While in Saigon the artist studied 
under Nguyen Tri Minh, the dean of 
Vietnamese artists. These lessons cli- 
maxed a series of studies under fore- 
most artists including Ralston Crawford 
in Honolulu; Japan's Tashi Senda, one 
of that country's foremost abstraction- 
ists; John Cunningham, Carmel, Cali- 
fornia, and Orville Dillingham of Los 
Angeles. Mrs. Drachnik has won 
awards in 16 juried shows during the 
last five years — among the more im- 
portant were the International Exhibi- 
tion, Vietnam, 1962, the Los Angeles 
County Fair Invitational, 1961, the Cal- 
ifornia State Fair, 1959, and the Wash- 
ington, D. C, Landscape Club show at 
the Smithsonian Institution, 1964. In 
addition to the recent one-woman show- 
ing at the Lee Gallery in Alexandria, 
she has had shows at Stanford Research 
Institute in Palo Alto, California; Win- 
ston's in San Francisco and at the Viet- 
namese Government's "Hall of Infor- 
mation" in Saigon. 

The artist is noted for her abilities in 
the perception and blending of colors, 
and for her use of color planes to create 
illusionistic space. March Planchon, 



Alumni Invited 
to Convocation 

A record turnout of faculty, students 
and staff is expected at the annual 
President's Convocation scheduled on 
April 7 at 10 a.m. in the Cole 
Activities Building. 

President Elkins will address the 
campus community and the convo- 
cation committee has issued an invi- 
tation to alumni to attend. 



French art critic of the Times of Viet- 
nam, wrote, ". . . Cay Drachnik's works 
are those of a complete artist . . . filled 
with poetic vision and luminosity." Her 
winning painting at the recent Smith- 
sonian show was described by the art 
critic of the Washington Evening Star 
as ". . . free and juicy in color and 
stroke . . ." 

University College Dean Ray Ehrens- 
berger, a former drama coach at Mary- 
land, in commenting recently about his 
former student, said, "Cay was always 
an exceptionally artistic person — her 
talents coupled with her indefatigability 
were most impressive . . . she was house 
president of Kappa Kappa Gamma — 
was very active with the Victory Coun- 
cil, 1943 — she organized and was pres- 
ident of the Art Club — she worked for

In Memoriam 

Dr. Henry J. Walton, m.d. "06, pro- 
fessor emeritus of radiology at the 
School of Medicine and a pioneer in 
his field, died recently at Union Me- 
morial Hospital. 

Dr. Walton, who was 86, was Profes- 
sor of Radiology at the School and 
Chief of the Radiology Department at 
University Hospital from 1916 until 
1945, when he left to devote all his time 
to a private practice. 

Retired from active medical practice 
for ten years, he was a pioneer in using 
X-ray equipment for both diagnostic 
and therapeutic purposes. 

Dr. Walton was responsible for many 
of the developments and practices in 
the radiology curriculum at the medical 
school and in the radiology department 
at the hospital. 

His papers on obstetrical radiology 
and measurement of the female pelvis, 
published in the 1930's, are classic to- 
day. His charts for the measurement 
of the head of the unborn child are still 
in use. 

Dr. William S. Stone, Dean of the 
School, recently called Dr. Walton a 
"distinguished radiologist and devoted 
teacher." 

He was a past President, charter 
member and fellow of the American 
College of Radiology. 

In 1960 Dr. Walton established a 
lecturship in radiology at the Maryland 
medical school to bring to Baltimore 
noted radiologists to lecture and deliver 
papers. 

Surviving are his wife, the former

of Atlanta, and two daughters, Mrs. 
Richard Manning, of New Canaan.

Faculty, also headed the Department of 
Surgery, School of Medicine from 1948 
until 1955, when he retired. He was 
Professor Emeritus of surgery at the 
time of his death. 

At a 1957 meeting of the Medical 
Alumni Association of the University of 
Maryland, Dr. Edwards was presented 
a gold key for "his outstanding con- 
tribution to medicine and distinguished 
service to mankind." 

An officer in the Medical Corps dur- 
ing World War I, he headed Baltimore's 
civilian defense medical service in 
World War II. 

Surviving are his wife, the former

tardation for the layman, among his

He is survived by a sister, Miss 
Eleanor M. Walsh, 24 Greaton Dr.,

and two brothers. Dr. John N. Walsh

pointment to the Federal bench in

February 11. Judge Fisher would have 
been 68 years of age, February 14. 

He was stricken with an apparent 
heart attack in the Duval county court- 
house shortly before the start of a trial.

He was first appointed to the court by 
President Eisenhower. 

Son of one of the first Peoples Court 
judges in Baltimore, Judge Fisher was

Excerpts from an address by President Wilson H. Elkins to the 
faculty and students of the University of Maryland, April 7, 1965 



The Maryland Magazine 



THE MIXTURE OF MYTH AND FACT 

X HE GROWING DEMAND FOR HIGHER EDUCATION AND I III 

great expectations of students and parents (particularly 
parents) have brought the universities under closer scru- 
tiny. Many criticisms have been based on the premise that 
the rapid growth of the universities has created faceless, 
impersonal educational factories where graduates are 
ground out from merciless, sterile molds by the junior 
members of the faculty while the senior professors are 
comfortably engaged in their well-financed laboratories 
and closed-door offices with the academic monster called 
research. The neglected undergraduate, so the critics say, 
is the victim of a "flight from teaching" and is the "for- 
gotten man" on the mushrooming campuses. The poor 
student is left to shift for himself after a brief exposure to 
the physical plant and the horrors of registration, and a 
glimpse of the glittering, wonderful world of activities and 
organizations. The customers of higher learning, we are 
told, somehow survive registration and inadequate guid- 
ance and, armed with six digit identification numbers, begin 
the tortuous course toward the glorified degree — that 
modern passport to a respected job and social respectabil- 
ity. The pitfalls along the way are described as traps to 
eliminate not only the weak but also thousands who are 
frustrated and discouraged by the cold, callous "multi- 
versity." At the end, the student who outlasts the mechan- 
ical monster is reasonably well prepared to make a living 
but lacks a sense of purpose or direction. This is the 
mixture of myth and fact about a large university. 



OUR SITUATION AT MARYLAND 

... the student must develop his own desire to learn. The 
unmotivated student may remain unmotivated. The uni- 
versity cannot force the student to work, the main in- 
gredient of success. 

In demanding a good performance, (the University) 
fosters improvement and excellence. By an absence of rigid 
academic regulations, it encourages independent effort and 
the development of self-discipline. By setting higher stand- 
ards, it raises the quality of the individual and society. By 
promoting activities outside the classroom, it encourages 
the development of the whole person. And by concentrat- 
ing on the intellectual side, it develops depth so graduates 
can perform effectively in their chosen professions. 

(The) record (of student achievement) shows that the 
percentage of failures has declined since 1960-61. In the 
fall of 1961 the percentage of dismissals was 8: 1; in the fall 
of 1964 it was 7:1. The total of undergraduate dismissals 
during a year has dropped from 12.8% in 1960-61 to 
10.9% in 1963-64 ... the overall performance of the 
student body has improved. Moreover, we have a higher 
retention rate of students in good standing, or fewer drop- 
outs. 

The latest projections indicate that the enrollment at 
UMBC will reach nearly 9,000 by 1975, with the enroll- 
ment at College Park stabilizing — we hope — at about 
34,000 — 12,000 more than we have here now. 

The myth that graduate programs weaken the teaching 
of undergraduates is not supported by evidence. The grad- 
uate school attracts students who are well qualified to serve 
as assistants and who enable the university to serve a mas- 



sive undergraduate enrollment. I ins enables many depart 
ments to make the best use ol their senior and junioi pro 
lessors who lecture in person oi by closed circuit television 
to large groups ol freshmen and sophomores n the grad 

uate programs were severely curtailed, the recruitment ol 
faculty members would be more difficult than it is now 

and ultimately the undergraduates would suffei from a ] 
gressive scarcity of teachers. 

... it is more myth than fact that smaller schools on 
the whole provide better teaching than lari'cr ones. | he 
important point is the quality of the teacher, anil lai 
universities with their extensive physical facilities are in a 
favorable position to attract highly qualified personnel 

There is a great deal of apprehension about the future 
of teaching because of the expansion of research and the 
prevalence of a policy called "publish or perish." I his is 
not an idle concern. There is danger ahead it we fail to 
maintain balance and perspective. If everyone insists on 
a maximum of six hours of teaching per week, and main 
demand less, we shall have an irremediable scarcity ol 
faculty and a ghastly output of unread publications. We 
shall also have a neglected undergraduate student both. 
This problem can be controlled at the departmental level 
by promotions and salary incentives lor good teaching and 
less emphasis on the quantity of publications. "Publish or 
perish" is not an approved policy of the University ol 
Maryland, but it would be a misrepresentation to insist that 
it isn't practiced at the higher faculty levels. 

One of the most persistent myths is that a good research- 
er is not a good teacher and vice versa. The real problem 
is to support research in such a way that it will not affect 
the welfare of the undergraduate students. This can be 
done most effectively by supporting the good teacher. The 
noticeable "flight from teaching" could become alarming; 
and in order to protect the interest of students and. in 
the final analysis, the faculty, this subject must be given 
more attention by faculty, administration and trustees. 

There are a number of "late bloomers" and the Uni- 
versity provides a reasonable period for them to blossom. 
But the myth that most slow students will show substantial 
improvements if given sufficient time has placed unfair 
pressure on both students and universities. 

The University is, in a sense, a large laboratory for test- 
ing the perseverance — sometimes the patience — as well as 
the ability of the student, and in this respect it is much 
like the outside world in its demands and expectations. 

The University of Maryland is committed to the exercise 
of the basic freedoms, but it believes just as strongly that 
there must be rules and regulations consistent with the 
public nature of the institution. It encourages academic 
freedom but does not associate this principle with any 
right of students to determine academic or non-academic 
requirements. It encourages students to participate in the 
affairs of the University to the extent of their time, interest 
and competence, and in accordance with the University's 
statutory organization and duly authorized plan of opera- 
tion. This University believes that respect for authority and 
law is essential to the development o\' good citizenship and 
that the insidious erosion and sometimes outright defiance 
oi authority is a dangerous trend in our society. It seems 
clear that if any student or group of students is allowed to 
seize power in the name of freedom of speech, then the 
universities should close their doors before rigor mortis 
sets in.

Registration. Lobby of Student Activities Building 




This is a typical meeting of the several Chapters which were 
convened during the morning session. 



J. Logan SchutZ, Director. Office of Alumni Affairs, addresses the 
luncheon meeting. 



Reunion at College Park 

UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND ALUMNI TURNED OUT IN 
record numbers at College Park May 15 for Spring 
Reunion. The annual event sponsored by the Alumni 
Association provided alumni both young and old with 
a full day of activities. 

The program began with registration Saturday morning 
at the Student Union followed by chapter meetings in which 
officers were elected to guide the alumni activities of the 
respective college chapters for the ensuing year. Concur- 
rently with registration and chapter meetings, refreshments 
were served in the student lounge — providing a focal point 
for the renewal of friendships and the exchange of informa- 
tion concerning classmates. 

Luncheon followed on the lower floor of the Student 
Union with the spotlight focused on the five-year class 
groups who were seated together. The Abram Z. Gottwals 
Memorial Award was presented to two Maryland alumni 
for distinguished service to the Alumni Association and 
the University of Maryland. President Erna R. Chapman 
made the awards to Dr. William H. Triplett, Med '11 and 
Dr. A. E. Goldstein, Med '12. 

The outstanding male and female senior students in the 
College of Education were presented certificates by Mr. 
William A. Burslem, Edu '32, President of the Education 
Alumni chapter. The recipients were Mrs. Suzanne H. 
Hardy and Mr. Charles W. Craft, whose names will also 
be engraved on the large alumni plaque to be placed in 
the new Education Building. 

A highlight of the luncheon program was an outstanding 
performance by the Madrigal Singers under the direction 
of Professor Rose Marie Grentzer. 

In addition to a lacrosse game with Johns Hopkins and 
a doubleheader baseball game with Penn State, the after- 
noon program included tours of the McKeldin Library 
and Center of Adult Education. Following the athletic 
events, a large number of alumni returned to the Student 
Union lounge to enjoy refreshments and an opportunity to 
visit with friends that they may have missed earlier. Two 
films were shown in the Student Union auditorium — The 
Climate Of Learning, an excellent color film portraying the 
scope and distinctions of the University's educational and 
research programs with emphasis on the undergraduate 
campus at College Park, and Film Highlights Of The 1964 
Football Season. 

In the evening, the classes of 1920, '25, '35 and '40 
held class banquets which were well attended and provided 
an evening of fellowship and reminiscing. Climaxing the 
day's activities was the excellent student play, Witness 
For The Prosecution, which was enjoyed by a large turn- 
out of Maryland alumni.

THE DEANS REPORT 



TO THE ALUMNI COUNCIL 



Each year, the Deans of the various colleges and schools 
of the University of Maryland are invited to attend a 
ting of the Alumni Council of the Alumni Association 
and give a report on the programs, progress and problems 
of their colleges and schools. This year's meeting was 



February 12 at the Student Union at College Park. A 
common point of reference in each of these reports was 
the rapid increase in enrollment and the resultant require- 
ments of additional faculty members and teaching facilities. 
Highlights of their presentations follow. 




College of Agriculture 

Dean Gordon Cairns re- 
ported that two new depart- 
ment heads have been ap- 
pointed: Dr. Robert W. 
Krauss, Department of 
Botany and Dr. Francis 
C. Stark, Jr., Department 
of Horticulture. Recent 
changes in curriculum are 
proving very satisfactory. A 
proposed addition is in 
Food Service, developed 
jointly with the College of Home Economics. The research 
program in the College, the earliest on campus, is con- 
tinuing strongly with both State and Federal support. 
Basic research is an important part of the activities of the 
College as well as the applied research that is associated 
with specific problems that may develop within the State. 
The Extension Service is being reorganized, and a con- 
siderable portion of the work has already been accom- 
plished by Dr. Edward W. Aiton. This service is of im- 
portance to all the people of the State. 

College of Arts and sciences 

Dean Charles Manning re- 
ported that there have been 
several important achieve- 
ments in the College of Arts 
and Sciences this year. 
Among these are the instal- 
lation of the Phi Beta Kappa 
Chapter, the award of the 
new cyclotron by the 
Atomic Energy Commis- 
sion, and the completion of 
the new Fine Arts Build- 
ing. He added that the Art Department, under the direc- 
tion of the new chairman, Dr. George Levitine, gives 
promise of becoming the outstanding art department in 
the area. Dean Manning said that the departmental honors 
programs have moved ahead strongly, and the University 
made it possible to award 24 partial scholarships to selec- 
ted senior honors students. Enrollment in the College for 
Spring, 1965 was approximately 6,300 students, up from 
5,400 a year ago. Perhaps the most significant educational 
event is the introduction of the new General Education 
Program under the direction of Dr. Gayle Smith. 





College of Business 
and Public Adminis- 
tration Dean Donald W. 
O'Connell summarized the 
activities in his college. High 
points included the inaug- 
uration of a new Depart- 
ment of Information Sys- 
tems Management which 
Dean O'Connell enthusi- 
astically described as having 
been established to provide 
an undergraduate major in information systems and to 
provide courses for students in other departments whose 
studies will be aided by such courses. The Dean pointed 
out that two of five of the University's Regents Awards for 
Excellence in Teaching went to members of his faculty, 
and for the fourth successive time, the Ford Foundation 
awarded one of its national Faculty Research Fellowships 
to a member of the Department of Economics. 

The College has also been cooperating with the Counsel- 
ing Center and the Placement and Credential Service in 
advancing a program to help academically dismissed stu- 
dents find new career paths and opportunities. Finally, in 
the field of public service, a specially selected team has 
completed The Maryland Tax Study, a large scale analysis 
prepared for the Governor's Commission on State and 
County Finance. 



School of Dentistry 

Dean John Salley reported 
that the vital statistics for 
the academic session of 
1964-1965 include: 384 
dental students, 15 graduate 
students, five postgraduate 
students and approximately 
100 attending continuing 
education courses offered by 
the School. He continued 
that one of the more im- 
portant events of the year 
was the celebration by the School of Dentistry of the 125th 
Anniversary of its founding as the Baltimore College of 
Dental Surgery on March 6, 1840, making it the oldest 
dental school in the world. The event was celebrated with 
a three-day meeting in Baltimore on March 4, 5 and 6 
sponsored jointly by the School and the Dental Alumni 




The Maryland Magazine 



Association. The meeting brought together outstanding 
men in the field of dentistry and higher education. There 
were a series of lectures and panel discussions as well as 
special luncheons and a banquet to commemorate the 
occasion. In addition, plans are progressing for a new 
physical facility for the School. The prospect of a new 
building and facilities has also involved a re-evaluation and 
re-direction of the undergraduate dental curriculum to pro- 
vide the student with a better integration of all phases of 
his dental education. 



College of Education 

Dr. L. Morris McClure, As- 
sistant Dean, reported for 
Dean Vernon Anderson. 
The big news in Education 
is the construction of a new 
building to be open next 
Fall. This building will bring 
together in one facility for 
the first time the entire fac- 
ulty of the College, with 
the exception of the Indus- 
trial Education Department which will remain in its own 
building. It will be one of the most modern facilities for 
teaching in the East, and among other things will house 
the Science Teaching Center. Enrollment in the College has 
passed the 3,000 mark with freshman registration up 40 
percent over the previous year. Standards have been main- 
tained despite the increased enrollment pressures. The 
College takes pride in the feeling that the University is 
making an increasing contribution to the State in terms 
of helping to relieve the shortage of teachers. 





Graduai i S< HOOl 

Dean Ronald Bamford 
ported on ilk growth ol the 
Graduate SlIhmiI and ol 
U red some comparative 
urev In 1920, the Graduate 
School awarded one doctoi 

ale and two master \ de- 
es Anticipated degi 
for 1965 are 150 doctorates 
and more than odd ma I 
degrees. Enrollment in the 
School has doubled from 

3,000 to more than 6,000 in the past five years. I he doc- 
torate is being offered in 36 departments and the master's 
in 52 departments. 



College of Home Economic s 

Dean Selnia l.ippeatt re- 
ported that the College is 
continuing to work closel) 
with its alumni, and that 
the alumni are now putting 
out their own newsletter. 
The College itself is looking 
forward to a new Home 
Management Building. The 
Dean continued that her 
College has received two 
Public Health Service grants, 
and that the curricula of the College is being changed and 
improved. Nine night courses are being offered this semes- 
ter, and the College has been asked, and is making plans. 
for a cooperative venture with Walter Reed Hospital in 
its dietary internship program. 




College of Engineering 

Dean Frederick T. Mavis 
reported that the College 
enrollment is at an all-time 
high, but that it must and 
will rise even higher. He 
added that the rate of en- 
rollment has far outstripped 
all national averages. Na- 
tional undergraduate en- 
rollment in engineering has 
increased four percent — at 
Maryland it is up 13.9 per- 
cent. Freshman enrollment nationwide has increased 10.9 
percent — at Maryland it is up 25.8 percent. The total 
number of bachelor degrees increased nationwide 5.3 per- 
cent — at Maryland 10.9 percent. Dean Mavis commented 
on the activities of the Engineering Alumni including the 
Bull Roast, FEEDUM, and went on to say that he has 
never known such alumni loyalty and devotion. He con- 
cluded saying the faculty and student body are of high 
quality and that they contribute to an ever-increasing pro- 
gram of teaching, research and other scholarly endeavors. 




School of Law 

Dean William Cunningham 
reported that the important 
event in the School of Law 
is the construction of their 
new building, which they 
hope to occupy by Septem- 
ber. The Dean stressed that 
such a facility can be instru- 
mental in attracting good 
faculty and students. As a 
result of the increased space 
in the new building, the 
School will be able to handle a greater enrollment and 
provide more adequate library space. It will also be able 
to maintain the increased number o( students at a high 
degree of quality. The recently-adopted requirement for 
a college degree for admission to the Law School will help 
maintain the quality of students. The curriculum is under- 
going constant revision with new courses being added to 
enrich the background of the student and to better prepare 
him for practice. 




May-June, 1965 




Ol ol \l! DICINE 

Dean William S. Stone re- 
ported that this has been a 
very satisfactory year for 
theSchool of Medicine. The 
School has an outstanding 
student body which has 
been able to cope with in- 
creasing academic require- 
ments. He indicated that the 
rapid increase of medical 
knowledge makes it difficult 
to teach the student every- 
thing: however, the School attempts to instill in its stu- 
dents a desire to continue to search for information 
throughout their lives. Maintenance of a top quality faculty 
has been a major objective of the School. The School also 
has a substantial research program in every department. 
Dean Stone continued that the School is well represented 
in a variety of professional organizations. 



School of Nursing 

Mrs. Lolah Mihm reported 
for Dean Florence Gipe. 
She stated that there are 
529 undergraduate students 
enrolled in the School of 
Nursing, and 187 enrolled 
in the graduate program. 
Mrs. Mihm outlined some 
of the specialties in nursing 
education that are now 
available to students. She 
also discussed a few of the 
grants the School has received for research and teaching. 
The highlight of the year has been the celebration of the 
75th Anniversary of the School of Nursing under the joint 
sponsorship of the school and the Nursing Alumni As- 
sociation. 



College of Physical Education, 
Recreation and Health 

Dean Lester Fraley re- 
^•v ported that the loss of five 

/ A key faculty members had 

been a blow to his College, 
*/*^ but the work has continued 

on a high level. Enrollment 
at both the undergraduate 
and graduate levels is up, 
and with the aid of addition- 
al funds, the research pro- 
gram is moving forward. 
Special committees have 
been established for various areas of endeavor, among 
them a Committee for Self-evaluation. Steps have been 
taken to strengthen the areas of indicated weaknesses in 
the College. In spite of many hours of work and the de- 
mands on the time of the faculty for committee work, the 
quality of instruction remains at a high level. The faculty 
members are involved in many research projects, some of 
which are being carried out in cooperation with professors 
from other University departments. 






School of Pharmacy 

Dean Noel Foss reported 
that enrollment in the 
School of Pharmacy is on 
the increase again for the 
first time since the School 
converted to a five-year pro- 
gram. The transfer from a 
four-year to a five-year pro- 
gram naturally created a lag 
in graduates until a full 
cycle had been achieved. 
Again there is an upswing, 
and the School will graduate 25 students this year com- 
pared to only two last year. Dean Foss also stated that 
his School is participating in the Middle States Report, and 
he has been working closely in this connection with Dean 
Bamford of the Graduate School. 



School of Social Work 

Dean Verl S. Lewis re- 
ported that the School of 
Social Work is the fastest 
growing school, based on 
percentage increase. Within 
its four years, the enroll- 
ment figures have already 
reached those projected for 
the ten to twelve-year mark. 
The demand on the part of 
community social welfare 
agencies for trained person- 
nel is overwhelming, and pressures for admission to pre- 
pare for professional service in social work increase at a 
rate exceeding all expectations. Enrollment in the master's 
degree program went to more than 100 this year. A begin- 
ning has been made to offer urgently-needed courses in 
the evening so that social workers may up-date their prac- 
tice knowledge. Experimental courses are being offered 
for volunteer workers in the field. These activities are con- 
tinuing in all areas of the State, and it is hoped that the 
School can make a substantial contribution to more effec- 
tive service by the State's public welfare agencies. 



University College 

Dean Ray Ehrensberger 
commented on new facilities 
of University College in the 
Center of Adult Education. 
Indicating that it may take 
three years for the Center 
to realize its potential, the 
Dean added that the alumni 
are welcome to use the fa- 
cilities at any time. Sum- 
marizing the overseas ac- 
tivities of University Col- 
lege, he reported that on many fronts the college is re- 
trenching because of the phase-out of many military instal- 
lations. This is offset by the increase in enrollment at home. 
Over 12,000 students were registered for UC courses last 
semester, and evening classes have increased 47 percent 
over the previous semester.

Inside Maryland Sports 

by Bill Dismer 
Sports Information Director 



^T-'WAS A GLORIOUS SPRING FOR MARYLAND ATHLETES, WITH 

X five varsity teams winning nearly 80 percent of their 
contests and three of the five copping Atlantic Coast Confer- 
ence championships. 

As expected, coach Jim Kehoe's track squad set the pace, 
with a perfect 1.000 percentage by winning three dual meets 
and going on to win the Conference title at Raleigh, in mid- 
May. In addition to outclassing the field, the Terrapins pro- 
duced seven individual champions and two title-winning relay 
quartets. 

Sharing honors with the thinclads was Coach Jack Jackson's 
baseball team which brought the ACC diamond title to Mary- 
land for the first time. The team wound up with a 16-6 
overall record (10-4 in the Conference) and compiled a 
winning streak of nine straight before a natural let-down 
(after winning the ACC) in the closing doubleheader with 
Pcnn State. As these lines are written the diamonders are 
preparing to compete in the District playoffs at Gastonia, 
North Carolina, with an eventual berth in the collegiate world 
scries at Omaha. Nebraska, awaiting the winner. Furman, 
Southern Conference champion, was the Terps' first foe. 

Coach Al Heagy's lacrosse team was the third Conference 
champion produced this spring at College Park. The stickmen 
compiled an overall record of 11-2, losing only to national 
champion Navy (7-13) and runner-up Hopkins (8-11). It 
was the first time Maryland had lost to its arch-rival in Balti- 
more since I960. 

( oach Doyle Royal's tennis team and Frank Cronin's golfers 
both had winning seasons. The racketers, 12-2 overall, finished 
third in the ACC standings which were determined for the 
first time by a Conference tournament in which individual 
players met their counterparts of the other teams. The golfers, 
si ill unbeaten over their home course where they scored eight 
victories and a tie, finished 9-3-1. Their fourth-place standing 
in the \< ( was determined at the May tournament at 
Pinehurst. 



Creating national interest whenever he competed was the 
sensational sophomore Frank Costello whose seven-foot high 
jump in the IC4A meet in March catapaulted him into the 
top three of the world's best high jumpers. Costello came within 
a quarter-inch of equalling that mark in the dual meet at 
Navy on May 1, later winning the ACC championship with 
a leap of 6-10. Many eyes were on him as he competed in the 
IC4A outdoor meet at Rutgers the end of May. 

Mike Cole, a senior winding up a brilliant track career here, 
successfully defended his Conference broad jump title with a 
leap of 23-9% . This was more than three inches less than 
the distance with which he had won the NCAA indoor champ- 
ionship in March — a 25-1 jump. In addition to his specialty, 
Cole won the ACC 220-yard dash and ran anchor on the 
Terps' record-tying 440-yard relay team. 

In addition to Cole and Costello, other Conference track 
titles were won by Steve Lamb, who broke an ex-Terp's record 
in the 440 with a time of 47.6; Russ White, who hurled the 
javelin 239 feet, 5Vi inches — more than 15 feet further than 
the former mark; Mike George in the two-mile run and Ram- 
say Thomas in the 880. Maryland's 440-yard relay team was 
composed of Jack Bickley, Cary Boxer, Lamb and Cole while 
its mile relay quartet had Elmore Hunter, Bickley, Ramsay 
Thomas and Lamb, running in that order. 

The secret for the success of the baseball team lay in the 
pitching. With a sophomore southpaw, Jerry Bark of Balti- 
more, setting the pace, the pitching staff had a combined 
earned run average of 2.38 — classy twirling in anybody's 
league. Bark, who won six against two defeats (one of them 
a 13-inning game which he lost, 1-0, after hurling nine innings 
of hitless ball) topped the regulars with a 1.39 ERA. In addi- 
tion, he struck out 102 batters — a record for Maryland pitch- 
ers — in the 7114 innings he pitched. Chris Sole, another lefty 
from Frederick in his junior year, was the squad's next-best 
with a 2.48 ERA, and a 3-1 record. Brad Frost, a third lefty 
and another soph from nearby Beltsville, compiled a 4-2 
record and an earned run average of 2.57. 

The Terps had an outstanding catcher in Steve Sauve, a soph 
from Mechanicsburg, who attracted the eyes of big league 
scouts from the start. Sauve handled the pitchers in great 
style and, although he hit only .254, tied team captain and 
second baseman Tom Bichy in scoring with 12 runs and drew 
nine walks, most of anyone on the team. Also drawing the 
attention of the scouts was sophomore first baseman Larry 
Davis who hit .291, including eight doubles. His 23 hits in the 



12 



The Maryland Magazine 



22 games also was high in that department. Junior outfielder 
Bob McCarthy led his team in RBI's with 14. while still an- 
other soph, Paul Breslow, stole 21 bases. 

Most encouraging is the fact that only one regular, Jon 
Kreissig, will be lost by graduation. Now if the scouts will 
only stay away from the others with major league potential 
the Terps could repeat as champs in 1966! 

Although the lacrosse team ended its season on a losing 
note, the afternoon of May 15 wasn't a total loss for the 
5,500 spectators. In addition to being treated to a rousing 
game in which the score was tied on six occasions and the 
lead changed hands five times, the fans were treated to an 
official induction into the Lacrosse Hall of Fame between 
halves. Edwin E. Powell, who started the sport at Maryland 
in 1910 and has been called "the father of lacrosse at Mary- 
land," was presented with his Hall of Fame certificate by Dr. 
Reginal Truitt, who had played lacrosse under him here at 
Maryland. Joe Deckman, another Maryland lacrosse great, 
presided, as co-chairman of the Hall's selection committee. 

Lend an ear now to what my student assistant (and manager 
of the wrestling team) Bob Stumplf has to say about his 
favorite sport. 

Making Maryland history at the 1965 NCAA Wrestling 
Tournament was All-American Bob Kopnisky, who hails 
from Pittsburgh. Bob became the first Terrapin wrestler to 
ever win a NCAA Championship and the only two-year All- 
American wrestler. 

To win the title in the 157-pound class in the Champion- 
ships at Laramie, Wyoming, Kopnisky defeated Bill Lam ol 
Oklahoma, 5-4. On Friday night in the semi-finals, he had 
beaten Iowa State's defending National Champion Cordon 
Hassman, 6-4. Hassman was the only matman to beat Kop- 
nisky this year. In the Iowa State-Maryland dual meet Hass- 
man won a 5-4 decision. 

Prior to this season, the highest a Terp had ever finished was 
in 1954, when Ernie Fischer was runner-up in the 167-pound 
class. 

Bob Kopnisky finished the season with an 8-1-0 dual meet 
and a 20-1-0 season record, the second Coast Guard Academy 
and third Atlantic Coast Conference Championship. His 
varsity career record at Maryland is 32-3-0. 

The NCAA victory ends an amazing career for Kopnisky at 
Maryland. He twice has been named the Outstanding Wrestler 
in the ACC Tournament, in 1963. and this year. Hassman 
was the second National Champion Kopnisky has defeated 
in three years. As a sophomore he won a 4-3 decision over 
Army's two-time NCAA Champ Mike Natvig. 

At the recent wrestling team Awards Banquet, Kopnisky 
was the recipient of every award offered. Mr. Herbert H. 
Goodman of the Terrapin Club presented Bob with the 
Herbert H. Goodman Award for the Outstanding Wrestler 
of the Year. This was the third time Bob has won this coveted 
award. University of Maryland President Dr. Wilson H. Elkins 
presented Bob with the Charles Leroy Mackert Award for 
the Maryland student who has contributed the most to wres- 
tling while at the University. 

Then Mr. B. Herbert Brown, member of Board of Regents, 
awarded Kopnisky his 1965 All-American certificate and a 
scroll done containing the 157-pound NCAA Tournament 
brackert chart. Bob also received his third letter and his 
graduating senior lettermen's award. 

Maryland Governor J. Millard Tawes sent Kopnisky a 
personal congratulatory letter on his winning the National 
Championship. 

Bob is a member of Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity and 
Omicron Delta Kappa honorary. Although he will graduate 
this year, he won't be leaving the University because he 
has already been admitted to graduate school. The Physical 
Education major has been married for two years. He and his 
wife Virginia became the proud parents of a son on May 10.

from Pennsylvania. Alter the meet ( oach Krouse remarked, 
"There's only one first and tonight was it!" 

When the red and white hosted Navy they scored anothei 
lirst. They not only handed the Middies a 17-M defeat, but 
also set a new Maryland attendance record with 4.^no 
spectators. 

Maryland had anothei first when All-American Hob Kop- 
nisky became the lirst Terrapin grappler to ever win an N< A \ 

Championship. 

It's not too early to comment on the 1965 football outlook, 
especially in view of the varsity's 44- IS rout ol a rather re- 
spectable alumni squad in the spring game on May 8. Bo 
Hickey. the team's leading ground-gainer as a soph last year, 
was up to his old tricks with 85 \ards rushing, and the \arsit\s 
defensive unit was impressive in holding the alumni to a net 
75 yards on the ground. Maryland's quarterback situation 
is still a bit vague, with the sophomore Bill Van Heusen, 
apparently Coach Nugent's top choice, hampered by late 
spring injuries which prevented him from appearing at his best. 
Phil Petry, the number one OB last year, shared the signal- 
calling with Jim Corcoran in the spring game. Petry threw a 
touchdown pass to Bruce Springer while Corcoran completed 
four of six passes for 84 yards and two touchdown tosses. 

The announcement that NBC had selected the Maryland- 
Perm State game as a national TV game of the week resulted 
in the shifting of that contest from the season opener to the 
season final on December 4. As a result, the first game next 
fall will be with Ohio University, here in Byrd Stadium on 
September 25. 

Ever attend a basketball game where the loudest and most

Memorial Day at 
Madingley Cemetery 

As a tribute to his devoted and out- 
standing service while a U.S. Army 
Captain during World War II, the 
American Overseas Memorial Day As- 
sociation invited Mr. Walter B. 
Bradley, A & S '37, to lay a wreath and 
give an address at the annual observance 
of Memorial Day at Madingley Ceme- 
tery in London. He attended the cere- 
mony as an official representative of The 
American Legion. 

Now Director of the Walter Brooks 
Bradley Funeral Homes in Baltimore, 
Bradley received the Legion of Merit 
Award in 1946 for outstanding perform- 
ance as Commanding Officer at Cam- 
bridge American Military Cemetery, 
United Kingdom. In 1945 he was 
awarded the Bronze Star for meritorious 
service as Chief of Graves Registration, 
Seine Section, in the European Theatre 
ol Operations. 

It was his responsibility to maintain 
the cemeteries in a high state of effi- 
ciency and appearance, and to respect- 
fully remove, prepare and inter the 
bodies of American, allied and enemy 
soldiers killed in action. He was instru- 
mental in identifying many Americans 
buried as unknowns. 

While attending the University, Brad- 
ley was a member of Kappa Alpha and 
a It. ( ol. in the R.O.T.C. Upon gradua- 
tion, he established a mortuary in Balti- 
more. He volunteered for active duty 
on the second day following Pearl 
Harbor and served 37 of 48 months in 
Europe commanding and organizing 
cemeteries. 





Returning home in 1945, he reestab- 
lished his business in Baltimore, then 
moved to Dundalk with his recently 
acquired wife, Mary Virginia Lloyd. 
The Bradleys are the parents of one son 
and three daughters. 

Bradley is a member of The Ameri- 
can Legion, Moose, Shrine, Masons, 
V.F.W., and is past Chairman of the 
Board of the Baltimore Junior Chamber 
of Commerce. 

The following is excerpted from the 
text of the address, "Many Returned," 
which Mr. Bradley delivered on May 
30 at Madingley Cemetery in London. 

On Memorial Day of 1965, we are 
going back to Cambridge, where we 
lived and worked so long with death. 

We are going to stand on a gentle 
slope, facing row upon row of crosses 
and stars of David, and we are going to 
salute the thousands buried there. 

In memory, we shall hear the roar 
of bombers and fighters taking off; the 
noise of ambulances rushing to meet 
those who returned. We shall hear the 
crack of rifle fire in a volley for the dead. 
And the plaintive notes of "Taps." 

In memory, we shall go back twenty- 
two years to a bleak December day in 
1943, when the outcome of World War 
II still hung in the balance. 

It was on the second anniversary of 
the Pearl Harbor attack that we dedi- 
cated, and opened for the first burial, the 
American Military Cemetery at Cam- 
bridge, England. 

The site was two miles west of the 
town, near the small village of Mading- 
ley, along a ridge line running toward 
St. Neots. On a clear day, one could 
look north across the fen country and 




see the gold-capped spires of Ely Ca- 
thedral, thirteen miles away. 

Though the site 
was notable for its 
natural beauty, it 
also was chosen 
for a practical 
purpose, being 
close to the 
United States 
Eighth (bomber) 
and Ninth (fight- 
er) Air Force 
Bases. 

In those days, uncertainty was our 
constant companion. One never knew, 
when the planes took off, how many 
would return. One never knew how 
many of those courageous young airmen 
would return in death. 

But we constantly kept 100 graves 
open. And we filled them. Eventually, 
we were to bury more than 6,000 Ameri- 
cans in that bit of adopted soil. 

Every day, week after week, the 
routine was the same. There were days 
filled with shocking noise, relieved by 
tense stillness which brought no relief 
at all. 

In the early morning, on clear days, 
the planes would roar away from their 
fields, bound on missions over Europe. 
When the last one had gone, the heavens 
were quiet again. 

It was wait, wait, wait, until once 
again we could hear the increasing drum 
of approaching motors. Then wheels 
screamed as ambulances sped out to 
meet the homing airmen. 

It was still again, very still, while the 
sad roll was tallied. Afterwards, the am- 
bulances rolled silently to the cemetery. 
Only the subdued voices of the Chap- 
lains, the rifle volley, the bugle notes, 
intruded on the quiet there. 

Truly, we hope, our dead rest in 
peace.

Grant to Social Work 

Dean Verl S. Lewis recently an- 
nounced an award by the U. S. Chil- 
dren's Bureau to the University of 
Maryland School of Social Work for a 
teaching grant of $56,236 to help more 
students prepare for careers in child 
welfare. 

Dean Lewis said the grant will be 
particularly valuable to the school in 
making it possible to add a child wel- 
fare specialist to the faculty and to 
launch an experimental program to train 
child welfare workers for inner city 
neighborhoods. It includes provision 
for ten traineeships valued at $2,350 
each. 

The school is already engaged in com- 
munity organization instruction pre- 
paring students to work with the poor in 
urban neighborhoods, and this week 
opened the nation's first major training 
center for VISTA (domestic Peace 
Corps) volunteers. 

Professor Appointed to

ment at the University since 1957, has 
been named to a 14-member steering 
committee for Project Head Start.

Office of Economic Opportunity anti- 
poverty effort, is aimed at helping chil- 
dren of needy families to compete suc- 
cessfully with their more fortunate class- 
mates when they start kindergarten or 
first grade. 

The response from American com- 
munities which want to operate Project 
Head Start programs this summer has 
been so great that the Federal funds 
for the programs have been tripled, 
bringing the total appropriation to about 
$50 million, with an average cost per 
child of $85 a month. 

Dr. Hymes has been a Research As- 
sistant at the Child Development Insti- 
tute at Columbia University, an As- 
sistant State Supervisor of Works Project 
Administration nursery schools in New 
York State; Director of the Hession 
Schools, Croton-on-Hudson, New York; 
Chairman of the Child Services Depart- 
ment, Kaiser Company, Inc., Portland, 
Oregon; Professor at New York State 
College, New Paltz; and Professor at 
George Peabody College for Teachers, 
Nashville, Tennessee. 

He is a graduate of Harvard (B.A.) 
and Teachers College, Columbia Uni- 
versity (M.A. and Ed.D. ). He is the 
author of six adult books, including 
Understanding Your Child, five chil- 
dren's books, and eight pamphlets. For 
two years he conducted the television 
program The Story of Man. 

Dr. Hymes is a native of New York, 
is married and the father of two girls 
and a boy.

Artillery, and in 1919 became a second 
lieutenant. 

After two and one half years in the 
Army, Bruce attended the law schools 
of the University of Virginia and the 
University of Maryland. He was ad- 
mitted to the Bar of the State of Mary- 
land in 1921 and entered private prac- 
tice in Baltimore. In 1924 he became a 
member of the Maryland House of Del- 
egates and in 1925 entered the United 
States Foreign Service. 

Foreign service interspersed with 
state government and private industry 
has highlighted the brilliant career of 
this statesman. His fellow alumni take 
great pride in the honor to be bestowed 
upon him by Princess Margaret and 
Great Britain.

Alumnus Named University Photographer of the Year 



Al Danegger, H.Ec. '50, and head of the 
University's Photographic Section, has 
been named "University Photographer 
of the Year" by the University Pho- 
tographers Association. The award was 
presented at the Association's fourth 
Annual Conference in April, and recog- 
nizes Danegger for "outstanding per- 
ception and ability to produce photo- 
graphs of the highest quality." 

Danegger became university photog- 
rapher 15 years ago after receiving 
his degree in art. He taught photo- 
journalism as an Assistant Professor 
from 1952 to 1958. Today the Photo 
Section has three full-time staff mem- 
bers and employs up to 15 student as- 



sistants. A photo-history of the Uni- 
versity is contained in the 800. 000 nega- 
tives in the Section's file. 

As the above pictures show, assign- 
ments take the university photographer 
to all parts of the world. As faculty ad- 
visor for the "Flying Follies," Danegger 
accompanied the group on several over- 
seas tours. Assignments and personal 
trips furnish the material for his popular 
and frequent slide-talks on travel and 
photography. 

A recipient of the Oscar Fisher 
Award for "Outstanding Service to Pro- 
fessional Photography," Danegger is 
editor of a newsletter for college and 
university photographers and editors 



and a member and National Committee 
Chairman of the National Press Pho- 
tographers Association. He is presently 
Chairman of the Faculty ( ommittee 

tor the Catholic Student ( enter, a mem- 
ber of the Advisors ( ommittee to the 
State Deparment of Economic Develop- 
ment for Maryland, a member of the 
Board of Directors and immediate 
past President of the Maryland Indus- 
trial Photographic Association, Council 
Member-at-large of the American Youth 
Hostels, industrial consultant to Pro- 
jection Optics, and consultant on gov- 
ernmental photography. 



Commerce Gold Medal 
Awarded to Dr. Alldredge 

Dr. Leroy R. Alldredge, Ph.D., Physics 
'55, of Mesa, Arizona, was awarded 
U. S. Department of Commerce Gold 
Medal, its highest honor, for "rare and 
outstanding contributions of major sig- 
nificance" to the Department and the 
Nation. Alldredge is a geophysicist in 
the Coast and Geodetic Survey, a bu- 
reau of the Commerce Department. He 
recently received a Presidential Citation 
in recognition of outstanding work in 
the Bureau. 

Both honors were conferred for de- 
signing new equipment which makes it 
possible to build and operate magnetic 
observatories at substantial reductions 
in cost. As a result, the Coast and 
Geodetic Survey, which heretofore has 
operated only two magnetic observa- 
tories in the conterminous United States, 
is now planning to establish four or five 
new observatories during the next dec- 
ade at an estimated saving of at least 
$80,000 in the construction of each fa- 
cility and $8,000 annually in its opera- 
tion. 

The new equipment designed by All- 



dredge is known as an Automatic Stand- 
ard Magnetic Observatory (ASMO). 
This, together with a digital computer, 
collects data on the earth's magnetic 
field and transcribes it into a usable 
form almost immediately. It eliminates 
the need for human, on-the-spot ob- 
servations, as well as future computa- 
tions, of the data. The elimination of 
the time-consuming, error-prone ele- 
ment allows substantial increases in rate 
and accuracy of data collection and 
conversion into usable form, at a re- 
duced cost in manpower and buildings. 
Prior to joining the Coast and Geo- 
detic Survey five years ago, he was as- 
sociated with the Operations Research 
Office of Johns Hopkins University. 

Alumnus Represents 
Governor, Mayor at 
Churchill Funeral 

James M. Swartz, Agr. '17, and Pres- 
ident of Mano Swartz Fur Companj . 
Baltimore, was the representative of 
Governor Tawes and Mayor McKeldin 
at the funeral of Sir Winston Churchill 
in London. 



Mr. Swartz recounts impressions and 
experiences in London at this most 
solemn time in a letter appearing in 
"Voice of the People," Baltimore New s 
American, April 17. 

"I was privileged to attend the re- 
ligious service in all its grandeur and 
reverence. There I saw dignitaries who 
had come from all over the world to 
pay their respects to human greatness. 
Their dress was different; their emotion 
and their bearing were the same. . . . 

"I left the Cathedral on foot to fol- 
low the casket from Saint Paul's to 
Waterloo Station. 

"The streets were roped off and som- 
ber. People stood in the same stance as 
the Royal Navy officers who had 
guarded him in Westminster Hall. I he 
horses trod lightly. Big Ben was silent. 
London seemed to hold its breath at 
his passing. 

"I went for a last time to stand in 
front of 28 Hyde Park Gate, the modest 
house in which he had lived, Always 

before, it had seemed to vibrate with the 
beat of the great heart within. But now 
that heart had ceased its labors, and 
there was nothins: at all."

luntary AFROTC 
Programs Nov* in Effect 

l ill, l University oi 

ipplicants for 

•ur-year voluntarj 

.us training programs (AF- 

u | ..i College Park. Compulsory 

KOK training at Maryland has been 

mtinued. 

Hv.th of the new voluntary programs 

prepare qualified university students for 

commissions in the U. S. Air Force 

upon graduation. 

Under the ROTC Vitalization Act 

of 1964. Congress has made provision 
initially tor 1.000 scholarships. Only 
ROTC students in the four-year pro- 
gram are eligible for these scholarships. 
I he Act provides for a ceiling of 5,500 
scholarships by 1970-71. 

The scholarships cover tuition, books, 
fees, supplies, and equipment, plus $50 
a month (for ten months) stipend. 
Plans call for the scholarships to be 
distributed among the nation's colleges 
and universities offering AF-ROTC. 

Scholarship applicants will be rated 
on the basis of the AF Officer Qualify- 
ing Test scores, college grades and a 
personal interview. AF-ROTC head- 
quarters officials at Maxwell AFB will 
make the final selection. 

Under the two-year program, eval- 
uation of candidates is begun at the end 
of the freshman year, since each stu- 
dent must meet physical and mental 
standards. Students completing two 
years of college and meeting these stand- 
ards must attend a six-week field train- 
ing course at a designated AF base dur- 
ing the summer preceding initial entry 
into the two-year advanced academic 
portion. Students completing their 
sophomore year who desire to enter the 
two-year program this fall must apply 
before April 15. 

Training in the four-year program is 
divided into two phases, basic and ad- 
vanced. The basic, or general military 
course, will be offered during the first 
two years followed by the advanced two- 
year professional officers course. Stu- 
dents under the four-year program will 
be required to attend four weeks of 
summer training at an active AF base 
during the summer after completing the 
junior year. 

Non-scholarship volunteers in both 
programs will receive a stipend of $40 a 
month during the advanced training 
program of both plans. 

Col. Vernon H. Reeves, University of 
Maryland professor of air science, said 
recently that college students should 
consider officer training "a privilege and 
an honor." 

"By enrolling in the AF-ROTC pro- 
gram the student is neither required 
nor permitted to sacrifice any part of 
the full measure and worth of his col- 
lege education," he said. 



"By failing to take advantage of the 
ROTC program a student would be 
lessening his opportunity of serving as 
an officer, since the ROTC is the pri- 
mary source of officers and the trend 
is away from granting commissions 
through officer candidate programs," he 
concluded. 

High school students who are ad- 
mitted to the University of Maryland 
before July 31 can register for these 
AF-ROTC programs during freshman 
orientation this summer. Other students 
can volunteer during registration in the 
fall. 



Space Sciences Building 
Now Under Construction 

Ground has been broken for the Uni- 
versity's $1.5 million Space Sciences 
Building at College Park. 

Attorney General Thomas B. Finan, 
representing Governor J. Millard Tawes, 
headed a group of distinguished sci- 
entists from the National Aeronautics 
and Space Administration and Mary- 
land officials who participated in the 
ceremony. President Wilson H. Elkins, 
Board of Regents Vice-Chairman Ed- 
ward Holter, and Dr. Monroe H. Mar- 
tin, head of the University's Institute for 
Fluid Dynamics and Applied Math- 
ematics, represented the University. 

Financed by a grant from NASA, 
the building will provide 77,043 square 
feet for the research activities of the 
Institute for Fluid Dynamics and Ap- 
plied Mathematics, the space science 
program of the Department of Physics 
and Astronomy, and a portion of the 
Computer Science Center. 

Dr. Martin said recently that the new 
facility would enable the University to 
intensify research in these areas. 

"The University of Maryland has for 
more than a decade conducted the- 
oretical and experimental research in 
various areas of space science including 
magnetohydrodynamics, fluid dynamics, 
applied mathematics, cosmc rays, in- 
terplanetary mediums, plasmas, and the 
upper atmosphere," he said. 

"We look forward to benefits of mu- 
tual cooperation between the University 
and NASA that this new facility will 
afford and the vast opportunities that 
it will open up for both students and 
faculty," he concluded. 

The six-floor building is being built 
east of the Computer Science Center at 
a site near Stadium and Regents Drives 
in Georgian colonial style brick ex- 
terior with limestone walls and rein- 
forced concrete frame. Architect is 
Johannes and Murray and Associates, 
Silver Spring. The builder will be Klein 
Construction Company, also of Silver 
Spring. 

The new facility will be located with- 
in one-half block of the University's 
Institute of Molecular Physics, Depart- 



ment of Physics and Astronomy, De- 
partment of Chemistry, Department of 
Mathematics and College of Engineer- 
ing. 

A unique feature of construction will 
be a provision for each floor to support 
250 pounds per square-foot so that 
heavy research equipment can be in- 
stalled. The usual weight support pro- 
vision ranges from 75 to 100 pounds 
per square-foot. The research laborator- 
ies will be built in the center core of 
each floor and will be surrounded by 
faculty offices on the outer perimeter. 



VISTA Corpsmen 
Train in Baltimore 

More than 400 volunteers in the war 
against poverty are being trained in 
Baltimore at the University of Mary- 
land School of Social Work over the 
next 16 months in preparation for as- 
signments in the new VISTA program 
(Volunteers in Service to America), 
which has often been likened to a do- 
mestic Peace Corps. 

The VISTA program is conducted by 
the Office of Economic Opportunity, 
which was established by the 1964 Eco- 
nomic Opportunity Act of the U. S. 
Congress. 

A $485,837 contract with the Office 
of Economic Opportunity is enabling 
the School of Social Work to train 
eight groups of 60 VISTA volunteers 
each. Dr. Daniel Thursz, Associate Pro- 
fessor of Social Work, is project direc- 
tor. 

The School of Social Work's training 
center is the first permanent VISTA 
training institution. Short term training 
programs elsewhere have prepared vol- 
unteers for work in depressed rural com- 
munities, Indian reservations, and mi- 
grant worker camps, but training here 
will emphasize work in urban projects. 

During their stay in Baltimore, vol- 
unteers are devoting half their time to 
working directly with the poor in Balti- 
more City, in cooperation with public 
and private social agencies. Under su- 
pervision of the School's faculty, vol- 
unteers are carrying out jobs similar to 
assignments they will undertake full- 
time for the remainder of their year of 
service. 

They are helping, for example, needy 
families get financial aid, and initiating 
tutoring programs, recreational projects 
and cooperative arrangements for care 
of preschool children during the day. 

The program, planned by Dr. Thursz 
and Dean Lewis, allows for flexibility 
and experimentation. "Many of the jobs 
volunteers can do have not yet been 
tried," Dr. Thursz said. "We intend to 
assign volunteers in training to such 
jobs. Not only will this be valuable ex- 
perience for them but it will demon- 
strate the value of volunteer assistance 
to the agencies cooperating with us."

A Student's View 



Bv Roy Eales, '66 



Beginning next 
semester the in- 
firmary staff will 
no longer get the 
writer's cramp 
and the ROTC Chiefs will no longer 
have to face freshmen ( infirmary ex- 
cuses in hand) and cry "Excuses, ex- 
cuses." No sir. ROTC will serve only 
those who want to be served. Two vol- 
untary programs, two-year and four- 
year, will prepare students for com- 
missions in the U. S. Air Force upon 
graduation. 

On the subject of excuses, professors 
are discovering extraordinary imagina- 
tive power among students who have 
been called nothing but fact-bags. One 
student after missing an exam told his 
professor he was born in the Okeefeno- 
kee Swamp and often suffered attacks 
of malaria. Thus, at the time of the 
exam it is assumed he was in a very 
sweaty state and unable to transport 
himself to the classroom. From the 
same Diamondback report comes the 
case of the student who learned of his 
having TB just around exam time. The 
lad, discovering he had only four 
months to live, felt the need for know- 
ing all about Saturn's Rings and the 
other astronomicalities quickly diminish. 

But for students who do face blue- 
books, which by the way are now 
yellow, Dr. Lester M. Dyke, director 
of health services, has offered some ad- 
vice. Pills and loss of sleep make a 
student jittery, he says. Cramming will 
not do unless the student has kept up 
with his studies. And to keep up with 
them he must study till 10:30 p.m. and 
wake up at 5:30 a.m. at which time he 
will retain more. Well it seems two 
students may have had Dr. Dyke in 
mind, with some improvisations of their 
own, when they took their blankets to 
the front of the McKeldin library and 
there slept the night on the Mall. But, 
no, after thinking it over this writer 
decided against their wanting to be first 
in the line to the library bookshelves. 
For it was later revealed that sleepers 
Chet Wolford and Fred Yaffe were 
demonstrating in favor of students doing 
push-ups and other exercises to improve 
stamina. The two were motivated to the 
cold and puddles by refusal of the 
Physical Education department to let 
Chet take a camping course. Nothing 
has since been heard of the two chaps, 
so it seems their fitness was not im- 
paired by the moonlight kip. 

A soft bed then it's been shown, one 
can live without. But food, that's diff- 
erent — or is it? Recently 20 students 
gave up the eating habit. "We want 
to stimulate minds — we want the apa- 



thetic to rail) to the cause." said one 
of the "fast for peace" students, hei 
stomach empty. I he cause.' fo protest 
U. S. policy in Vietnam. Hut apparently 
the apathetic did not rally to the cause 
since Macke's honey-buns did the same 
roaring trade. Maybe to stimulate minds 
the peace workers should have given 
away donuts and coffee— though an 
analogy between the donut and the 
apathetic minds is not intended. 

About the same time the apathetic 
were eating, another character appeared 
in front of McKeldin library. At 900 
pounds it seems he would be a likely 
candidate for a physical fitness dem- 
onstration. But being a brass turtle. 
Testudo wants none of it. In I act. 
though it's taken him years to gel from 
Byrd Stadium to the McKeldin library 
Testudo shows no embarrassment over 
his weight. Testudo originally turned up 
at the Ritchie Coliseum in 1933. He 
probably got fed up with the music there 
for he soon took off to Byrd Stadium 
on a football scholarship. Even so, our 
University mascot never graduated, 
which might be the reason for his day- 
in day-out hanging around the library 
picking the brains of anyone near. Who 
knows? He never says anything. 

But there was one visitor here who 
had a lot to say. Apart from not 
having turtles as mascots, most Russian 
universities give their students money, 
said the Soviet attache speaking to a 
Student Union audience. It provides 
him with a decent standard of living, 
the east European gent added, and 
what's more when vacation time comes 
trade unions give students rooms in 
rest homes and sanitoriums. Could this 
be a system for us to follow? Certainly 
a great incentive for our students to 
glide peacefully through the fall semes- 
ter after a summer of loving care. But 
no, that's not the answer, for two prob- 
lems can be foreseen: one, the students 
might not come back to school; and 
two, the sanitoriums and rest homes 
might find it psychologically necessary 
to keep too many students in. Is there 
anything the Russians can teach us? 

Still on a European note, the cast of 
University Theatre's Anything Goes 
finds our branch in Germany serving 
wine and wallop. In fact, since it's 
mentioned, there isn't a student union 
anywhere in Europe which doesn't 
have a pub. Students and faculty are 
often seen mingling over pints in all 
kinds of uninhibited discussion. Over 
there, they say this kind of relationship 
adds a little spirit to a university. "Our 
students are assumed to have some 
ideas on maturity and responsibility," 
says a British visitor to College Park. 
Well it all sounds very nice, but our 
system at Maryland is much less dubi- 
ous — that is, the system where faculty 
and students meet every month or so 
at a coffee-hour. Time being almost 
consumed completely by hourlies. term- 



papers, grade disputes and the like, in-

I hus non-customers' cars are towed oil 

to Hills lowing headquarters where

tomer can fork out $25 plus SI. SO every 

day the car is there. Hut according to 

the Diamondback, volunteers will gel a 

break if they talk civilly to the 7-1 I 
people and not threaten to sue. 

Well now, if you do happen to have 
your car towed away you might feel 
somewhat heated, but a shower may 
help. Some people though don't need 
inspiration from others to keep clean 
Take the case of University student 
Mark Dubinsky. Now here's a lad 
studied part-time in a shower. His fra- 
ternity had told Mark it would donate 
a dollar to Campus Chest lor every hour 
he spent wet. After 102 soaking hours. 
Mark broke the world record for such 
things and added SI 02 to Phi Sigma 
Delta's collection for the Campus Chest. 
Mark left the shower, which now bears 
his name, saying he had become bored. 
He said he played cards, studied and 
read but had trouble keeping his books 
dry. Well that's one way to soak up 
knowledge and help others at the same 
time. 

The girls of Cumberland Hall North 
dorm, originally an old male dorm, 
are to be evicted next semester. 
This decision, which will break up the 
only dorm of its kind on the campus. 
has made the girls "most unhappy." 
Major reason for the unhappiness is 
that the Cumberland Hall South dorm 
is full of boys, who according to the 
Dean of Women's office "would very 
much like to have their North dorm 
back." Strange fellows. 

There's a final note on eviction. The 
area fire department has burned foot- 
ball coach Tom Nugent's house which 
stood near the infirmary. It will be re- 
placed with an addition to H. J. Patter- 
son Hall. The coach has been moved to 
another house, of course, but he almost 
did not make it. For the burning, orig- 
inally planned for an earlier date, was 
cancelled when it was discovered that 
no one had informed the coach o\ the 
impending conflagration. ,.**

$2.2 Million Low Bid 
Accepted for UMBC 

A bid of $2,213,800 has been accepted 
for the construction of the first three 
buildings of the new Catonsville cam- 
pus. 

I he John K. Ruff Construction Com- 
pany of Baltimore was the low bidder 
of nine firms submitting figures to Mr. 
Albert Backhaus, head of the Depart- 
ment of Public Improvements. 

Construction will start immediately 
after approval by the University's Board 
of Regents and the Maryland Board of 
Public" Works. 

The largest structure, the academic 
building, will house classrooms, lab- 
oratories, most faculty offices, and the 
library facilities. The other two build- 
ings are a lecture hall and a multi- 
purpose building containing indoor 
physical education facilities, space for 
student activities, and a cafeteria. 

The work will be finished by the 
summer of 1966. In September, 1966, 
the campus will admit 500 freshmen, 
all commuters. 

I he new buildings will exhibit a more 
contemporary architecture than those 
at College Park. Dr. Albin O. Kuhn, 
who will become Vice President for the 
Baltimore ( ity and County Campuses 
on July 1. stated, "We felt that UMBC 
should not copy the architecture of 
College Park, but should have a dis- 
tinctive style ot its own." 

He added that the departure from 
the Georgian style in no way indicated 
dissatisfaction with it. but rather the 
desire that each campus should have an 
individual look.

Caseworkers Instructed 
in School of Social Work 

The University of Maryland School 
of Social Work has initiated instruction 
to a class of caseworkers of the Al- 
legany and Garrett County Welfare 
Boards during the spring term. The 
new course, "Family Life and Social 
Functioning," will be taught in Cumber- 
land by Mrs. Bryce W. Shoemaker, who 
has been appointed lecturer on the fac- 
ulty of the School of Social Work — 
the newest of the university's six profes- 
sional schools. 

Mrs. Shoemaker is a graduate of the 
University of Illinois, where she was 
a member of Phi Beta Kappa. She was 
awarded a master's degree in social 
work by the University of Pennsylvania. 
She later studied psychology at the Uni- 
versity of Edinburgh, and is a candidate 
for the doctor of social work degree at 
the University of Pennsylvania. 

The new course is part of a state- 
wide staff development program in 
which the university and the State De- 
partment of Public Welfare are co- 



-*V 



operating. Dean Verl S. Lewis of the 
university's School of Social Work and 
State Welfare Director Raleigh Hobson 
expect that other courses designed to 
assist staff members of social welfare 
agencies will also be made available. 

Instruction is now being offered not 
only to public welfare workers in Cum- 
berland but in Westminster, Baltimore, 
College Park, and in Chestertown and 
Salisbury on the Eastern Shore. 

Maryland Article Published 
in Congressional Record 

"The Politics of National Greatness," 
by Professor Franklin L. Burdette, which 
appeared in the March-April, 1965 issue 
of The Maryland Magazine, was re- 
printed in The Congressional Record 
on April 29, 1965 (pp. 8650-51) at the 
request of Senator Daniel B. Brewster 
(D.. Md.). 

In his statement to the members of 
the Senate, Senator Brewster com- 
mented, "Professor Burdette is a recog- 
nized authority, and I am confident that 



22 



The Maryland Magazine 



his comments on the current political 
scene will be of interest to my colleagues 
in the Senate." 

Dr. Burdette is Director of the Bu- 
reau of Governmental Research at the 
University, where he has taught since 
1947. He was Chief of the Information 
Center Service, U. S. Information Agen- 
cy from 1954-56 and is the author of 
several volumes, including Political 
Parties: An American Way. 

Alumnus is Author of 
High School Study Text 

Dr. George Weigand, ph.d. '51, di- 
rector of counseling and guidance at 
East Carolina College since September 
of 1963, has published a textbook, How 
to Succeed in High School for Barron's 
Educational Series. 

The new textbook, which draws a dis- 
tinct line between true learning and 
mere course-passing, is scheduled for 
release this Spring. It will be available 
in cloth-bound and paperback editions. 

Primary emphasis in Dr. Weigand's 
new text is on the difference between 
the high school student who is genuinely 
successful and the one who studies only 
to pass examinations and courses. 

Three previous Weigand textbooks 
are: College Orientation, How to Study 
and Like It, and How to Take Exam- 
inations. 

Dr. Weigand came to ECC from the 
University of Maryland, where he was 
director of intermediate registration. A 
former track coach, he has been an in- 
structor at Virginia Military Institute in 
Lexington and at West Nottingham 
Academy, Colora, Maryland. 

Home Economics 
Administrators Meet at 
Adult Education Center 

The North East Region of Home 
Economics Administrators met on 
March 4 and 5 at the Center of Adult 
Education, University of Maryland. 
Among those attending were Dr. Jane 
Crow, '41, presently Director of Home 
Economics at the University of Maine, 
and Miss Margaret T. Loar, '41, Acting 
State Leader, Extension Home Eco- 
nomics, Home Demonstration Depart- 
ment, Cooperative Extension Service, 
University of Maryland. Both are alum- 
ni of the College of Home Economics. 
This was the first time the Home 
Economics Administrators have held 
their Spring Meeting outside of New 
York City. Because of the wonderful 
facilities at the new Center of Adult 
Education, Dr. Selma F. Lippeatt, Dean, 
College of Home Economics, was re- 
sponsible for their coming to the Uni- 
versity of Maryland Campus. The 
Home Economics Administrators in- 
cluded the Deans or Directors, Heads of

In Memoriam 

Funeral services for Dr. William Kel- 
so White, m.d. '02, Baltimore physician 
whose 54-year practice was interrupted 
only by three years in World War I, 
were held at St. Michael's and All 
Angels Episcopal Church on March 3. 

Dr. White, who retired from active 
practice nine years ago, died at the 
Perry Point Veterans Hospital at the 
age of 87. 

During World War I, he served in the 
University of Maryland's Medical Corps 
in France, returning to Baltimore after 
the war with the rank of major. 

He had been company physician for 
the Equitable Life Insurance Company 
for 35 years and for the Monumental 
Life Insurance Company for 25 years 
before his retirement. 

Dr. White was a native Baltimorean, 
graduated from the Johns Hopkins Uni- 
versity in 1900 and the University of 
Maryland Medical School two years 
later. 

Most of his medical practice had 
been done from his office in his home, 
3005 St. Paul Street. 

He belonged to the Medical and Chi- 
rurgical Faculty of Maryland, the Bal- 
timore City Medical Association and

tered pharmacist shortly thereafter. 

His only job had been with the firm

ident of the firm when he went into 
semi-retirement several years ago. 

His entire life had been devoted to 
the advancement of the profession of

outstanding figures in the world of 
pharmacy, said of Dr. Black at a 1955 
alumni banquet, at which the Honored 
Alumnus Award was bestowed upon 
him, "there has not been in pharmacy 
a better exponent of the best public re- 
lations than Frank Black. He is prob- 
ably better known and perhaps better 
liked by the members of his own pro- 
fession than any other pharmacist with- 
in the state of Maryland and is highly 
regarded by them. 

"From the time of Osier down to 
now, Frank has contacted and served 
most of the distinguished members of 
the medical profession — Johns Hopkins 
Medical School and the University of 
Maryland in particular, most of the 
dentists, nurses, and representatives of 
other health activities and, of course,

tion, the Baltimore Veteran Druggists 
Association, the Wedgewood Club and 
the Fifteen Club. His activities included 
leadership in the Kelly Memorial Build- 
ing Fund and the Baltimore Drug Ex- 
change. 

Dr. Black married the former Miss 
Alice Evelyn Richter in 1909. 

In 1948, when he had completed his

Your Amazing Telephone Line 




Bell System engineers are finding that 
because it can carry your voice so well, 
it's good for a lot of other uses, too! 

Telephone lines carry both the deep 
tones of men and the lighter tones of 
women with fidelity. This is why you 
can always recognize a familiar voice 
over the phone. 

Your telephone's wide tonal range 
offers other communications possibili- 
ties as well. 

One of these is a portable unit which 
doctors can use to transmit an on-the- 



spot electrocardiogram of the heart 
from a patient's home phone. The 
'"E-K-G" signals are converted to tones 
which are sent over the phone line to 
a hospital for study by a specialist. The 
diagnosis can then be telephoned back 
to the doctor. 

Another probability is that someday 
you may pay bills by phone. You will 
simply insert special plastic cards into 
a telephone set that dials automatically, 
and then detail the dollars and cents 
by pushing numbered Touch-Tone® 
buttons. In this way you will ring your 
bank's computer, identify your ac- 
count with a code number, and tell the 



computer whom to pay and how much. 
Your bank will do the rest. 

In fact, the things your phone can 
do for you. just by basically being a 
phone, are still not fully explored. 

Its ability to transmit the tones es- 
sential to such data communications 
as the "E-K-G" and the bill payment 
suggests many remarkable new uses 
for your telephone line. 

Our engineers are working on them. 
As its future unfolds, day by day, your 
telephone line will surely become more 
personally yours than it is even now 
. . . one of your most useful aids.

Our 154th Commencement 



|_T'S A GREAT DAY!" BEAMED VICE PRESIDENT HUBERT H. HUMPHREY, AS HE STEPPED 

from his limousine at Cole Field House on Saturday, June 5. His exclamation both de- 
scribed the late Spring morning and aptly expressed the sentiments of nearly 17,000 
persons gathered at the College Park Campus for the University of Maryland's 154th 
Commencement Exercises. 

Promptly at 10 a.m., to the strains of "March" from Mozart's The Magic Flute, a 
record class of 4,301 filed four.abreast through congratulatory sunshine to their seats 
in the fieldhouse. Inside, an audience of more than 12,500 proud parents, relatives 
and friends watched as the solemn, yet festive, procession filled the flag-draped plat- 
form and row upon row of chairs. 

The Reverend William C. Tepe, Catholic Chaplain at the University, gave the Invo- 
cation, and persona] greetings were extended to the graduates by J. Millard Tawes. 
Governor of Maryland and Mr. Charles P. McCormick, Chairman of the University's 
Board of Regents. 

Special music for the ceremonies, furnished by the Combined University Choral 
Groups under the direction of Mr. Fague K. Springmann, included Gloria, by Mo/art. 
and Waring's moving arrangement of The Battle Hymn of the Republic. 

In the principal address, Vice President Humphrey considered the question: "How 
can we conserve most effectively the human resources of America'.'" 

"We can no longer afford the luxury of squandering . . . human resources through 
poverty, disease, illiteracy, unemployment or discrimination," he said. "The simple 
truth is this: America needs everybody in the difficult business of making democracy 
work. And — for the first time in recorded history — we possess the economic wealth 
and the intellectual attainment required to make every American a lull partner in this 
noble enterprise." 



July- August, 1965 



: . cii I rights issue, Mr. Humphrey 

He the press has told of instances where 

thwart the (1964 Civil Rights) Law, 

ias been the far greater evidence of wide- 

.e in all sections of the country." 

it paid tribute to the "many brave and 

-both black and white . . . willing to 

..ometimes lose their lives, in carrying 

It upon the barriers of legalized dis- 

Their actions,*' he said, "have demonstrated 

in this country and around the world that 

i lives here. They have shown us again that the 

st for freedom is the strongest and most compelling 

force in the world."' 

I he challenge to America now, he said, is one of 
complementing the reality of 'equal rights' with the atti- 
tude of equal respect' among all peoples and races in 
America, to discover whether or not American Negroes 
and other minority groups can now be brought fully into 
the mainstream of our political, economic and social life." 
'The accomplishments of Negroes have been obscured 
by false history," the Vice President asserted. "And this 
misleading and misread historical record has played its 
part in discouraging a climate of equal respect among peo- 
ples of all races." 

Listing some Negro accomplishments, Mr. Humphrey 
noted that: 

□ Negroes participated in the exploration of the New 
World, "not simply as slaves, as our youngsters are taught, 
but just as frequently as soldiers and sailors, as Jesuit mis- 
sionaries and as free settlers." 

□ Twenty-six of the forty-four settlers who established 
San Francisco in 1781 were Negro. 

□ Chicago was founded by a French-educated Negro 
who left New Orleans because of job discrimination. 

□ Thirty thousand Negroes "fought shoulder to shoul- 
der with General Washington in our War for Independ- 
ence." 

□ The technique of blood transfusions was perfected by 
a Negro doctor, Charles Drew. 

Humphrey asked his audience, "Will we be able ever 
to calculate the loss to America — and to the entire world 
— of the potential talent among our Negro citizens which 
we nevertheless sacrificed — and are still sacrificing — for 
reasons of prejudice and discrimination? Will we be able 
ever to realize the terrible human price we have paid in 
supporting this system of second-class citizenship?" 

Mr. Humphrey then spoke of the "quiet revolution" 
underway among Negroes, stemming from the increased 
Negro enrollment in colleges and professional schools, a 
rising level of income among Negroes and a declining 
school dropout rate among Negroes as compared to the 
general population. 

"These men and women," he declared, "are succeeding 
despite the handicaps of prejudice ... of closed doors . . . 
of limited or non-existent educational opportunities . . . 
and of the deep psychological wound of being a Negro in 
a period where this often implied second-class citizenship 
and back-of-the-bus." 

Calling attention to the fact that discrimination can as- 
sume many forms and many guises, Mr. Humphrey said 
that "through such massive efforts as the anti-poverty pro- 
gram, the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, the 
Higher Education Act, we arc attempting to reach down 
to the ghetto, into the slum, and into rural areas to give 
the forgotten youngster a chance to function as a creative, 
productive and responsible human being. 



"We must extend the hand of opportunity to this for- 
gotten individual caught in the ghetto," he continued, "but 
it must necessarily remain the responsibility of the in- 
dividual — as it is the responsibility of every human being 
— to grasp this hand firmly and with determination. For 
any person . . . the pursuit of excellence and creativity in- 
volves the willingness to accept responsibility and the 
courage to take risks. These are the qualities upon which 
respect thrives. 

"I am fully confident," the Vice President concluded, 
"that this era will be remembered as the time when Amer- 
ica provided every person with an opportunity to accept 
this challenge — when we discarded forever the shroud of 
hate and bigotry for the shining mantle of human freedom 
and dignity." 

Following Mr. Humphrey's address, he received an 
honorary degree of Doctor of Laws from President Wilson 
H. Elkins, President of the University. Similar degrees 
were conferred upon Frederick W. Brune, former Chief 
Judge in the Maryland Court of Appeals, and Dr. James 
A. Sensenbaugh, State Superintendent of Schools for 
Maryland. 

Honorary degrees of Doctor of Science were conferred 
upon Dr. Donald F. Hornig, Special Assistant to Pres- 
ident Johnson for Science and Technology and Chairman 
of the Federal Council for Science and Technology, and 
Dr. James A. Shannon, Director of the National Institutes 
of Health, main research arm of the U. S. Public Health 
Service. Mr. Eric Sevareid, distinguished news correspond- 
ent and commentator, was the recipient of the honorary 
degree of Doctor of Humane Letters. 

Honorary certificates of merit in agriculture were 
awarded to four Maryland citizens for their contributions 
to agriculture in the State. They were: Samuel M. Quillin, 
of Berlin, Vice President of P and L Processors, Inc.; 
Granville Gude, of Laurel, prominent Washington area 
florist; Fred C. Downey, of Williamsport, dairy farmer; 
and Noah E. Kefauver, Jr., of Middletown, milk producer. 

Deans of the thirteen schools and colleges presented 
3,325 bachelor degrees and 976 graduate degrees to mem- 
bers of the Class of 1965. In similar ceremonies through- 
out the country during the month of June, over 1,500,000 
men and women received bachelor's degrees, and another 
100,000 students earned higher degrees, according to U. S. 
Labor Department statistics. 

Officers of the United States Air Force, the United States 
Marine Corps and the United States Navy who successful- 
ly completed the ROTC program at the University re- 
ceived their commissions from Colonel Vernon H. Reeves, 
Professor of Air Science. 

Following the singing of The Alma Mater, benediction 
was given by The Reverend Theodore R. Caspar, Lutheran 
Chaplain at the University. The music of Haydn's tri- 
umphant march from the "Military Symphony," played by 
Mr. Charlton G. Meyer, University Organist, accompanied 
the Recessional and concluded the Commencement pro- 
gram. 

THE WEEK PRECEDING THE COMMENCEMENT PROGRAM 
was alive with traditional social and commemorative 
activities for graduates and alumni of the various schools 
and colleges within the University. 

College Park degree candidates heard Rabbi Abraham 
Shusterman at Baccalaureate services on May 30 in the 
University's Memorial Chapel. Rabbi Shusterman has 
served as head of the Har Sinai Congregation in Baltimore 
since 1941. Since 1955, he has been a member of a weekly

PROFESSOR LUDWIG ERHARD, CHANCELLOR "I III! 
Federal Republic of Germany, and the Honorable- 
George C. McGhee, United States Ambassador to Ger- 
many, were honored guests at the University of Maryland 
European Division's thirteenth annual commencement 
exercises held in Heidelberg on May 30. President Wilson 
H. Elkins conferred honorary Doctor of Law degrees 
upon both men. 

Baccalaureate degrees were also conferred by Dr. 
Elkins upon 134 graduates, more than half of whom were 
in attendance. Of these 75 received Bachelor of Arts de- 
grees in General Studies, while the rest received Bachelor 
of Science degrees in Military Studies. The Master of 
Arts degree went to Lt. Col. James M. Lee. 

Although this year's class size was comparable to 
graduating classes in recent years, demand for seating 
in the Neue Aula of Heidelberg University was greater 
than ever. In order to accommodate the large group of 
Heidelberg students who wanted to hear Chancellor 
Erhard and Ambassador McGhee, the ceremony was 
televised into the University's largest lecture room. 




Folli the processional of students, faculty and 

into the auditorium. Professor Dr. Wilhelm 
Rector of Heidelberg University, opened the 
monies with a few words o\ welcome. 

.land's Governor Tawes next went to the rostrum 
and extended greetings from the State of Maryland and 
the borne campus at College Park. 

»it) ( ollege Dean Raj Ehrensberger presided 

e ceremony, and was assisted by Dr. Mason G. 

Daly, director of the European Division. The University 

Maryland Board of Regents was represented by Mrs. 

John L. Whitehurst and Mr. Harry H. Nuttle. 

Ambassador McGhee was the principal speaker, and 
lie chose the occasion to make some far-reaching pro- 
nouncements about the Federal Republic of Germany. 
His talk, entitled "A Time for Decision," was widely 
reported in the United States by radio, television and 
newspapers. 

The Ambassador said that the Federal Republic of 
Germany had put its house in order in the twenty years 
since the end of World War II. He complained that some 
people still distrust Germany because of its past, but he 
called these feelings "disturbing remnants of a negative 
attitude that is badly out of date." 

Having cited the democratic institutions and strong 
economic structure built in the new Germany with its 
government at Bonn, Ambassador McGhee stated, "There 
is no question as to the high place Germany has attained 
in the western community of nations — with great benefits 
to the community as well as to Germany. Why, then, 
should there be any remaining doubt about Germany?" 

Rarely in the history of University College's European 
Division have so many distinguished guests attended a 
Maryland graduation. General Andrew P. O'Meara, Com- 
mander-in-Chief of the United States Army, Europe, and 
Mrs. O'Meara headed the list of dignitaries, which included 
Lt. Gen. and Mrs. William W. Quinn, CG, Seventh U. S. 
Army; Maj. Gen. and Mrs. F. T. Pachler, Chief of Staff, 
USAREUR; Maj. Gen. and Mrs. William A. Enemark, 
Chief of Staff, CENTAG; Maj. Gen. and Mrs. Joe S. 
I.awrie, Chief of Staff, USAREUR; Maj. Gen. The Hon. 
Michael Fitzalan-Howard, CENTAG; Maj. Gen. and Mrs. 
Stanley R. Larsen, DCS Ops, USAREUR; Maj. Gen. 
and Mrs. David B. Parker, Trans Officer, USAREUR; 
and Maj. Gen. and Mrs. Hamilton A. Twitchell, Seventh 
U. S. Army. 

The list of dignitaries also included Brig. Gen. and Mrs. 
O. M. Barsanti, Comptroller, USAREUR; Brig. Gen. and 






Mrs. R. von Canstein, Senior German Liaison Officer to 
USAREUR; Brig. Gen. and Mrs. A. M. Giroult, 
CENTAG; Brig. Gen. and Mrs. W. von Rosenthal, 
CENTAG; Brig. Gen. and Mrs. Robert M. Williams, 
Staff Judge Advocate, USAREUR; Prof. Gunther Born- 
kamm, Rector Designatus, University of Heidelberg; 
Mr. and Mrs. George Bogardus, American Consul, Stutt- 
gart; and Mr. and Mrs. Everett K. Melby, American 
Consul, Frankfurt. 

Due to the state of international affairs in Asia, Mary- 
land's Far East Division graduation ceremonies for 1965 
were conducted on an informal basis, and only at one 
location — Tokyo's Sanno Hotel. Of the 61 graduates, only 
23 were able to be present to receive their diplomas. On 
the giving end of this exchange was UC Dean Ray Ehrens- 
berger, who acted on behalf of University President Wil- 
son H. Elkins. 

Dr. Joseph E. Dellen, director of the Far East Division, 
gave the principal address of the evening. He told the 
graduates that everything they did should have meaning 
and that they had the choice of being spectators or partici- 
pating observers in the affairs of the world. 

Continuing his optimistic and forward looking theme. 
Dr. Dellen said, "The search for meaning lies in man, in 
ourselves. To achieve this search for meaning you must 
continue to recognize that humanity is the goal and there 
is need to discard outmoded ways of thought." 

The graduating class was marked by outstanding aca- 
demic achievement. Of the 61 diploma winners, 25 were 
on the Dean's List and 8 qualified for Scholastic Medal- 
lions. To qualify for the former, a student must earn a 3.5 
average in his last 15 semester hours of work; to merit a 
medallion he must post a 4.0. 

Statistics show that 55 of the graduates were male, 6 
were female. Fifty-five were married, 6 single (no correla- 
tion ) . Among those students qualifying for membership 
in the University of Maryland Alumni Association were 
nine DAC's, three DAFC's, seven dependents, 16 Army 
personnel, 25 Air Force personnel, and one Marine. They 
came from 30 different states, California holding the lead 
with eight. 

Among the guests present for the occasion were Dr. 
Charles B. Fahs, United States Minister for Cultural 
Affairs; Major General Ethan A. Chapman, Chief of 
Staff, US Forces, Japan; Major General Charles M. 
McCorkle, Vice Commander, Fifth Air Force; and Briga- 
dier General Douglas C. Polhamus, Commander, Kanto 
Base Command.

Inside Maryland Sports 

by Bill Dismer 
Sports Information Director 



THE "BIG BOY" WON'T BE BACK, BUT THERE SHOULD BE A 
whale of a football team at College Park next Fall. 

News that Tom "Bo" Hickey, the sophomore tailback who 
rushed within ten yards of an all-time University record last 
fall, had fallen victim to scholastic grades made the headlines 
in the Sunday papers of June 20, but it didn't change Coach 
Tom Nugent's opinion that Maryland would have a fine team 
in 1965. 

"We'll just make the necessary adjustments in personnel," 
were Nugent's words upon being informed of the loss of his 
No. One running back. And those who know the crafty Irish- 
man believe that he will come up with something to keep the 
Terps the contenders they are expected to be. 

The immediate hope is that one of three men will step into 
Hickey 's shoes. Nugent's initial reaction was that Walt 
"Whitey" Marciniak, a fine all-around back who was second 
only to Hickey in ground-gaining last fall, would move from 
his fullback spot to tailback. Whitey gained 448 yards — the 
highest yardage for a No. 2 Maryland back since Ralph 
Felton's 556 in 1953. In addition, Marciniak is a fine blocker 
and a great team player. Ole Number 34 could be the fancy 
of the fans next fall in his new role. 

A second possibility is that Ernie Torain, who could be 
the second Negro to excite Terp followers, will take over 
Hickey's vacated spot. Ernie gained 357 yards rushing for 
the freshmen last Fall (averaging 4.4 yards per carry) and 
has the build (5-9, 200) to do the job. Torain, along with 
"Skip" Lee, was one of Baltimore Poly's championship team 
of 1963, the pair of them being known as the "touchdown" 
twins." Torain was running just behind Hickey at the end 
of Spring drills and is the same sort of hard-driving, shifty 
back that Hickey is. 

The third candidate for the role is a senior, Doug Klinger- 
man, who in two years has averaged four yards for his 53 
carries. Klingerman, a 5-11, 190-pound product of Blooms- 
burg. Pennsylvania, saw considerable action last fall, gaining 
140 yards for 30 rushes. The coaches respect him as a good, 
aggressive runner . . . and an excellent student. 

With 30 lettermen returning, including seven from the 
1963 squad who were ineligible last year, Maryland fans 
will see mostly experienced players in the offensive and de-

tensive units which will start the campaign against Ohio 
University here on September 28. The only non-letter on 
the offensive team will be Bill Van Heusen, a quarterback 
and standout of last year's freshmen eleven. Van Heusen, 
6-1, 198-pounder from Mamaroneck, New York, was "Mr. 
Everything" for the Baby Terps in '64, leading them in rush- 
ing (558 yards — 8.7 average), scoring (56 points), passing 
(12 for 20 for 173 yards, three touchdowns), punting (41.6 
yard average) and kickoff returns (20.4 average). Unfortun- 
ately, Bill cracked a rib mid-way through the Spring drills and, 
although he started the game against the Alumni on May 8, 
had to retire early with a leg injury. But Nugent had been 
pleased with what he saw and tabbed him the No. One OB 
in his final Spring depth chart. 

Two of the four lettermen of 1963 who sat out last year 
will be on the No. One offensive unit. They are Tom Cichow- 
ski, 6-4, 230-pound tackle, and Dick Melcher, one of a pair 
of twins from DeMatha who stands 6-1, weighs 218. Com- 
pleting the offensive line will be Dick Absher (6-5, 235) and 
Chip Myrtle (6-2, 205) at ends; Matt Arbutina (6-1, 220) 
at the other tackle, and Milan Vucin (5-9, 198) at the other 
guard. Chick Krahling, a senior who played guard last year, 
will take over the center spot. 

Although the No. One defensive unit is not as experienced 
as the offensive, with two sophomores apparently having won 
starting berths, it was Nugent's opinion that it was further 
advanced at the end of spring drills. Nugent went so far as 
to say it could "hold its own in any league in the country." 
On this team also are a pair of lettermen from the 1963 
team, Melcher's brother Mick and Gary Miller. The 
sophs who were found on this eleven at the close of Spring 
drills were Tony Santy, a rangy 6-3, 195-pound safety back 
from Plainfield, New Jersey, and Jim Lavrusky, a six-foot 
208-pounder from Monaca, Pennsylvania. 

Old-timers might have a bit of difficulty visualizing the 
positions of members of the defensive units at Maryland if 
they were to see only a printed lineup. There are no guards 
or center on Nugent's defensive teams nor such a thing as 
a fullback. Instead, there are left and right outside line 
backers, a middle linebacker and a safety. 

In the regular positions of defensive ends will be the senior 
John Kenny ("unsung hero" of the 1964 season) and Mick 
Melcher and at tackle will be another senior, Larry Bagranoff 
(who proved quite a lacrosse player this Spring) and Bob 
York, 225-pound, a junior from nearby Silver Spring. A 
pair of sturdy juniors who proved themselves last year will 
return to back up the line — Lorie McQueen and Ron Nalewak 
— while Lavrusky will safeguard the middle.

Fred Cooper, another junior, will cavort with Miller in the 

defensive halfback position, while Santy will be the safety 
back. The latter beat out a two-letter veteran, Bob Sullivan, 

for this job during Spring drills but Sullivan will see plenty 

of action in his senior year. 

On the whole it looks like a good year lor terrapin fool

Byrd Stadium. In addition to witnessing the unveiling ol the 

'65 team on September 25 against a new foe, Ohio I diver- 
sity of the Mid-American Conference, it will be the annual 
Band Day with close to 100 high school bands in attendance 
The next week, October 2. Syracuse re-appears here lor 
the first time in four years, beginning a new six-year series 
running through 1970. In II previous Maryland-Syracuse 
games each has won five times with the other game a score- 
less tie (1935). The last game, in Byrd Stadium in 1961, 
was the all-time thriller, Maryland edging out a great S\ ra- 
cuse team led by the late Ernie Davis. 22-21. Syracuse will 
invade with 18 of the lettermen who posted a 7-3 record last 
year and who will have played at Navy and Miami (Florida i 
before coming to College Park. 

The Terps will play their next two games on the road, at 
Wake Forest and North Carolina, before returning for a 
homecoming game with North Carolina State on October 23. 
Although holding an all-time 10-8 edge over the Wolfpack, 
Maryland hasn't beaten them since 1962. losing a 14-13 
thriller last Fall at Raleigh. 

Games number six, seven and eight all will be played 
away from home at South Carolina, Navy and Clemson. 
The Navy game, on November 6, again should make An- 
napolis the mecca for Terp followers. 

Originally, the game with Virginia on November 20 was 
scheduled to be Maryland's last, but NBC's decision to make 
the Maryland-Penn State game a national ••game o\ the 
week" resulted in its postponement until December 4. \\ nh 
the pre-season pointing to Maryland and Perm State being 
among the best in the East, the wind-up could be for a 
bowl bid, provided neither has faltered enroute. Penn State 
will have played such powers as Michigan State. U.C.L.A., 
West Virginia, Navy and Pitt, the last-named being played 
on November 20, same date as the Maryland-Virginia con- 
test. Thus, both Penn State and Maryland will have two 
weeks to prepare for their big TV meeting in December.

Dr. Schultze Appointed 
Director of U. S. Budget 

Dr. Charles Schultze, Professor of 

Economics at the University, has been 

appointed by 

a President Lyndon 
B. Johnson as 
the new United 
States Director 
^/t of the Budget. 

The position of 
director of the 
Bureau of the 
Budget will in- 
volve Dr. Schul- 
tze in the distri- 
bution of 100 
billion dollars, He will not only super- 
vise and prepare the Federal budget, but 
he will also provide stall services and 

analyses tor the President's policies 

and budgeting operations. 




According to Dr. Dudley Dillard, 
Chairman of the Department of Eco- 
nomics, "Dr. Schultze is certainly one 
of the outstanding economists in the 
country. He is an excellent teacher, a 
personable individual and a brilliant 
man. This new position is a great and 
well-deserved tribute to him." 

A monograph on inflation published 
by the Joint Economic Committee of 
the United States entitled Recent In- 
flation in the U. S., and written by 
Schultze, is used in graduate schools 
throughout the country. He is also the 
author of a new paperback, National 
Income Analysis. 

The former professor previously had 
served as a staff economist on the Coun- 
cil of Economic Advisors from 1952- 
59. He was appointed Assistant Director 
of the Budget Bureau in September, 
1961. 



Dean of Engineering 
Retires to Teaching 

Last June, Dr. Frederic T. Mavis, Dean 
of Engineering, requested permission of 
University President Wilson H. Elkins 
to give up the administrative responsi- 
bilities which he has held for eight years 
and return to teaching. This June 
marked the end of his 32-year career 
of full-time administration at four major 
universities. Before coming to the Uni- 
versity in 1957, Dean Mavis was head 
of academic and research departments 
at the University of Iowa, Pennsylvania 
State University and Carnegie Institute 
of Technology. 

Regarding the reasoning behind his 
resignation, Dean Mavis explains, "I had 
seen two deans whom I loved and ad- 
mired become very unhappy men when, 
by reason of age, they were forced to 
give up administration without having

prepared themselves fully for it." I he 
65-year-old Dean, in a letter to his de- 
partment heads, said that he is looking 
forward to his first months vacation 
since 1933, and to teaching in the De- 
partment of Mechanical Engineering. 
"with no administrative responsibilities. 
an absolute minimum of college com- 
mittees, and the time and opportunity 
to cover myself with library dust, class- 
room chalk, and clean laboratory dirt." 
Dean Mavis is the recipient o( four 
degrees from the University oi Illinois. 
He studied in Europe in 1927-28 as one 
of the first group of Freeman Travel- 
ing Fellows of the American Society ol 
Civil Engineers. He has published ex- 
tensively in fields of hydraulic engineer- 
ing, structural analysis, applied me- 
chanics, and engineering education. He 
was awarded the Wason Medal for 
Research by the American Concrete 
Institute, and he is a member of nu- 
merous professional and honorary so- 
cieties. 

Professor Russell B. Allen, now as- 
sociate dean of the College, has been 
appointed Acting Dean of Engineering. 



Edwin Powell Enters 
Lacrosse Hall of Fame 

The man who laid the foundation for 
Lacrosse at the University of Maryland, 
Edwin Powell, Engr. *13, was honored 
at Spring Reunion with membership in 
the Lacrosse Hall of Fame. 

Ed Powell came to the campus in 
1909 with such enthusiasm for the game 
that he sold his ideas and interest to 
some 13 other students. Not one of 
those men knew even the rudiments 
of the game and not only were they 
faced with having to buy their own 
equipment, but they had to obtain ad- 
ministration approval and faculty for- 
bearance as well. 

A schedule was arranged for 1910 
and for four trying years the sport, 
under the indomitable spirit of the 
founder, supported by the grace, 
rhythm and ability of his playing and 
his tactical knowledge of the game, 
took root and started to flower, eventu- 
ally to reach national championship 
proportions. 

On the field during the half time at 
the Maryland vs Hopkins Lacrosse 
game on May 15, membership in the 
Lacrosse Hall of Fame was conferred 
upon the game's founder. In a tribute 
by Dr. R. V. Truitt he was saluted as 
athlete, business man, loyal alumnus, 
and superb attack man (1910-1913). 

Teammates who returned for Spring 
Reunion and to honor Ed Powell were 
Christian H. Buchwald, "15; Charles 
A. Chaney, '11; Edgar W. Montell, '15; 
Lloyd R. Rogers, '14; Ernest Trimble, 
'13; and Reginald V. Truitt, '14.

Missionary Realizes Dream 
to Become a Physician 

A chance encounter in the Bahamas 
with a Baltimore psychiatrist led a 33- 
year-old medical missionary, Thomas 
Cimonetti, to return to the United States 
in 1961 to enroll at the University of 
Maryland School of Medicine. This 
June he received his M.D. degree at 
Commencement Exercises at College 
Park. 

The incentives toward Dr. Cimonettis 
unfulfilled boyhood dream of becoming 
a doctor came with his marriage to 
Anne Marie Pierce, a Canadian nurse, 
and from his association with Dr. Frank 
Ayd of Baltimore. 

The Cimonettis had gone to Nassau 
in the Bahamas where she set up a 
nursing program in Catholic schools 
and he taught at Aquinas College. There 
he became acquainted with Dr. Ayd 
who was on a lecture tour. Dr. Ayd 
convinced him that his desire to become 
a physician was not out of his reach. 
In 1961 the Cimonettis returned to

able to FEEDUM and the University. 

Dr. I I. Mavis, Dean of the Col- 
lege ol Engineering, reported that this 
college is at the highest level it has 
ever been— thanks to the fine teamwork 
ol students, faculty, alumni, and ad- 
ministration. 

The engineers applauded a brief re- 
port by Dean Hmeritus S. S. Steinberg 

looking younger and more vigorous 
than when he retired for the first time 
at age 65 in 1956. Meanwhile he was 
retired for a second time — from the 
presidency of the Aeronautical Institute 
of Technology, at Sao Jose dos Campos, 
Brazil — and he is now working full- 
time with the National Academy of 
Sciences, Washington, D. C. 

Faculty members meeting with the

Alumnus Appointed as 
Deputy State's Attorney 

A young man with new and positive 
ideas about justice becomes Maryland's 
first lull-time deputy State's Attorney. 
Howard S. Chasanow, A&S '61, LL.B. 
'61. was recently appointed Chief As- 
sistant to State's Attorney Arthur A. 
Marshall, Jr., in Prince Georges County. 
Portrayed as a maverick by Jerry Lip- 
son, stall' writer for the Waslun^ton 
Evening Slav, Chasanow, a resident of 
drcenbclt. joined Marshall's office in 
lanuary 1963 as a part-time assistant 
attorney after completing his military 
service. 

First in his law- class at Maryland 
and with a master of laws degree from 
Harvard, Howard Chasanow was not 
always an exemplars student in high 
school, and he recalls an incident with 



an understanding policeman who called 
him in on a traffic violation, talked to 
him for two and a half hours and really 
straightened him out. Such experiences 
might be why Mr. Chasanow takes a 
special interest in the juvenile cases that 
come before the Prince Georges County 
courts. 

As full-time deputy, Howard Chasa- 
now will be in charge of the office when 
State's Attorney Marshall is away, and 
will share with him the problems of 
administering the eight-man staff of 
attorneys. 



Alumnus is Leading Builder 

Is there a secret formula for transform- 
ing undeveloped land into a complete 
self-contained apartment community for 
25,000 people? Following a recipe of 
60 years of experience and dedication 
to a "Total Living" concept, the Lefrak 
organization is building Lefrak City — 
a "City Within a City" consisting of 20 
eighteen-story apartment skyscrapers, 
shopping centers, 
^*m^ a Federal office 

building, and a 
full complement 
; m^ «, of recreational, 

^ cultural and com- 

/mj~Tr- mercial facilities. 

^^\g<^ The firm hand 

^k tVJ^ guiding the or- 
^y\| ganization, which 

I^JTlHL enjoys the distinc- 
tion of being the 
world's largest private builder of mul- 
tiple dwellings, is Samuel J. Lefrak, 
Engr.'40. 

Sam Lefrak, who was active on cam- 
pus as an undergraduate, succeeded his 
father as president of the Lefrak Or- 
ganization, Inc. in 1948. Under his 
dynamic leadership, his firm acquired 
some of the choicest building sites in 
the New York metropolitan area, be- 
gan assembling specialists in architec- 
ture, engineering, construction, account- 
ing and sales, and proceeded to erect 
apartment dwellings which attracted the 
construction industry. In 1955 the Le- 
frak Organization built Kings Bay 
houses in Brooklyn, a middle-income 
apartment development. This program 
was the first city-financed, privately con- 
structed housing venture of its kind in 
the United States. 



For the next several years, through 
primary construction and ownership of 
multiple dwellings, the Lefrak Organi- 
zation, Inc. branched out into many 
other fields, and in many parts of the 
world. They included office buildings, 
industrial parks, shopping centers, 
schools, and Federal, state and munici- 
pal projects. 

The most ambitious program 
launched was the $150 million Lefrak 
City, the "City Within a City," hailed as 
a revolutionary undertaking and which 



received citations for achievement and 
design. This complex of middle-income 
apartment buildings is located in the 
Forrest Hills section of Queens — a short 
distance from the World's Fair grounds. 

More than 450 buildings have been 
constructed by Lefrak. It is estimated 
that one out of every 16 New Yorkers 
lives in a Lefrak-built apartment. His 
recognized leadership in the field of 
housing has prompted governmental and 
international organizations to call on 
him for counsel. 

The firm is now planning and de- 
signing low budget developments in 
Central and South America and explor- 
ing the possibilities of establishing native 
building industries in Africa and Asia. 

Among the many honors bestowed 
upon Sam Lefrak was his recent selec- 
tion as the recipient of the John F. 
Kennedy Peace Award of the Jewish 
National Fund of America. He is a 
member of President Johnson's Com- 
mittee on Employment of the Handi- 
capped, a Director of the World's Fair 
Corporation, and a member of the Sara- 
toga Springs Commission, in addition 
to many other public service and phil- 
anthropic activities. 

A resident of Woodmere, New York, 
Mr. Lefrak is married to the former 
Ethel Stone. They have four children 
and a grandchild. 

Dental Alumni Confer 
Alumni Awards 

Drs. Rudolph O. Schlosser, D.D.S. 
'03, and Arthur Irving Bell, D.D.S. '19. 
were presented the School of Dentistry's 
Alumni Association distinguished alum- 
nus awards for 1965 at the Associa- 
tion's banquet. 

Dr. Schlosser is a native of Pleshen, 
Poland and migrated with his family 
to Meriden, Connecticut in 1889. His 
career led him through night school, 
nurses' training, dental school and re- 
nown in the field of dentistry. He was 
professor of Prosthetic Dentistry at 
Northwestern University until his re- 
tirement in 1947, when he became Pro- 
fessor Emeritus. He has contributed 
numerous articles and a now standard 
textbook, Complete Denture Prosthesis, 
to the dental literature. 

Dr. Bell was born in Prince Edward 
Island, Canada, and now lives in Catons- 
ville. He accomplished postgraduate 
work at the University of Alabama, 
Georgetown University, and the Col- 
lege of Physicans and Surgeons in San 
Francisco. 

He is active in numerous professional 
and civic organizations. He was the 
first President of the University of 
Maryland Council, past President of 
the Maryland State Dental Association, 
founder of the Dental School's alumni 
endowment trustees, and past President 
of the Dental School Alumni Associa- 
tion.

Engineering Students had 
to Write Their Way In 



If you were a civil engineering studenl 
in the early "20s and wanted to be ad- 
mitted to the University's chapter of the 
Tau Beta Pi Fraternity, what did you 
have to do? 

Young aspiring civil engineers in 
those days literally had to write their 
way in. 

A requirement tor admission was to 
submit a pledge thesis historical in na- 
ture on engineering projects connected 
with the State of Maryland. 

A student, for instance, could write, 
as Barnwell Rhett King did in January 
1926, on the subject of his interest, "The 
Muirkirk Iron Works," detail all phases 
of construction, show photographs and 
give pertinent historical data. 

That this requirement was well ad- 
hered to is attested by the recent finding 
in the College of Civil Engineering of 
more than 200 such theses written be- 
tween the early '20s and 1940 by stu- 
dents admitted to that fraternity. 

More in the form of an essay than 
a thesis, the idea of a written report as 
a pledge to the Tau Beta Pi Fraternity 
is still practised today (engineering stu- 
dents still have to write their way in). 
The big difference says Russell B. Allen, 
Acting Dean of the College of Engineer- 
ing, is that the subject matter is less 
technical and must conform to Tau 
Beta Pi's current objective to foster 
liberal culture in the engineering col- 
leges of America. 

The reports are being catalogued by 
the staff of the Maryland and Rare Book 
Department of the McKeldin Library 
and will be housed there permanently. 
Mrs. Isabella M. Hayes, Head of the 
Maryland and Rare Book Department, 
considers the find valuable because of its 
research value to students. 

The University Library is seeking to 
build a collection of reports, publica- 
tions and associative records of this type 
in addition to its other materials.

Origins and Effects of 
Prejudice are Discussed 

"We have to learn how to hate," said 
Dr. Eugene Brody, professor of psy- 
chiatry and director of The Psychiatric 
Institute at the University of Maryland 
School of Medicine, in a recent inter- 
view. Dr. Brody, with other members 
of his staff, has conducted research on 
intergroup relations in this country and 
abroad. 

"As a child becomes transformed into 
a functioning member of society vari- 
ous prejudices are instilled into him, 
primarily by his family, and later by the 
society in which he lives." 

Prejudice, Dr. Brody defines as "an 
antipathy based upon a faulty and in- 

July- August, 1965 



flexible generalization, li is, ,„ a sense 
related to paranoia in which a person 
doesn t behave on the basis of what is 
really true, but on the basis ol a fixed 

delusional idea, a prejudice maj be 

directed toward a group as ., whole, or 

toward an individual because Ik- is ., 
member oi that group. 

"This leads to stereotyped thinking," 
Dr. Brody continued. 

"One aspect oi prejudiced, stereo- 
typed thinking is that it simplifies lite; 
it reduces the number ol decisions thai 
must be made. It offers a sense ol iden 
city and inner security to those who 
can't afford to he uncertain or to ac- 
knowledge to themselves that they might 
lie mistaken. 

"Through the use oi stereotypes or 
myths the prejudiced person uses a tar- 
get group as a convenient scapegoat 
which can be loaded with his own 
sins and driven out of the community." 
What does psychiatry have to do 
with prejudice and poverty? he was 
asked. "We are interested first in the 
victims of poverty and prejudice. Prej- 
udice leads to some groups of people- 
being discriminated against in the eco- 
nomic struggle. The poor, once sick, 
stay sick in hospitals for a long time.' 
There are six to eight times as many 
poor who are chronic inhabitants of 
mental hospitals as those of better in- 
comes. Furthermore, a man who is a 
member of a discriminated-against 
minority group is not only more likely 
to be deprived of economic and educa- 
tional opportunities, but the experience 
of growing up as a segregated, depre- 
cated person has influenced the devel- 
opment of his personality in many ways. 
"And second, we are interested in 
the prejudiced person himself. What are 
his psychiatric characteristics and can 
they be modified?" 

Regional Workshop on 
Adult Illiteracy Meets 
at College Park 

The University of Maryland was one of 
three universities selected to bring na- 
tional teaching experts and representa- 
tives of 50 states together this summer 
to find the best way to train personnel 
and implement state plans for erasing 
this country's adult illiteracy. 

Maryland, along with the Univer- 
sities of New Mexico and Washington, 
conducted a two-week regional, inter- 
university workshop on adult basic edu- 
cation. Funds were made available by 
the Ford Foundation. Also cooperating 
were the National Association for Pub- 
lic School Adult Education, National 
Education Association and the U. S. 
Office of Education. 

In addition to idea exchanges, lec- 
tures, discussions, case studies and or- 
ientation sessions, the 29 state and ter- 
ritorial teams attending the Maryland 
workshop examined first-hand teaching 



techniques used in the Baltimore Public

He is survived by six grand- 
children and a brother, George C. of 
Stuart, Florida. Expressions of sym- 
pathy were in the form of contribu- 
tions to the University of Maryland 
Hypertension Research Fund and the 
Maryland Educational Foundation of 
the University of Maryland. 

John W. Stanley, Sr., 77, a re- 
tired Army major who taught military 
science and tactics at the University of 
Maryland died on May 10, 1965, at 
Walter Reed Army Hospital following 
a stroke. 

Born in Fayetteville, North Carolina, 
Major Stanley became a first lieutenant 
in the North Carolina National Guard 
in Raleigh, where he attended Agricul- 
tural and Mechanical College. 

During his Army career, he was a 
company commander on the Mexican 
border at El Paso, Texas, in 1916 and 
took part in three major battles in the 
Ypres and Somme offensives in France 
in World War I. 

He was assigned to the Army's chief 
of finance office here after the war, and 
taught at the University of Maryland 
from 1921 to 1924. He was a member 
of the Almas Temple, the Columbia 
Blue Lodge of the Masons, and a former

Howard E. Ziefle, Educ. '33, m.a. 
'41, died of a heart attack while visiting

A leading educator in the field of vo- 
cational education, Mr. Ziefle was the 
retired principal of Mergenthaler Vo- 
cational-Technical High School in Bal- 
timore, a model among trade schools, 
both here and overseas. Mr. Ziefle, 
whose teaching career started in 1925, 
was an outspoken proponent of the 
vocational student and he once said: 
"It's time that people realized that being 
a skilled craftsman is a pretty worth- 
while ambition . . . many of our grad- 
uates go on to college . . . and industry 
clamors for them. 

"We are very selective at Mergen- 
thaler," he explained. "We turn away 
many applicants because they don't 
meet our requirements." To many he 
was the spirit of Mergenthaler, a merger 
of several scattered vocational schools 
in Baltimore which he had helped to 
design. He became its first principal 
when it opened in 1953. 

Mr. Ziefle belonged to the Maryland 
Vocational Association, as well as the 
Baltimore Retired Public Schoolteachers 
Association and two honorary educa- 
tional fraternities, Phi Delta Kappa and 
Phi Lambda Sigma. He is survived by 
his wife, the former Ethel Delp, two 
daughters, and several grandchildren.

President. Time has slipped by so quickly. It has been 
a wonderful year for me in many ways, and it is difficult 
to list the reasons in any sequence of importance. However, 
I believe I would place at the top of the list the wonderful 
cooperation I have had from everyone. The Executive 
Committee was the best that anyone could have asked for, 
and the highest of praise must be given to the staff of the 
Alumni Office for the many long and hard hours of work 
which they gave in supporting the activities in which I 
participated. To you, the members of the Council, goes my 
sincere thanks for your cooperation and your fine spirit 
of friendliness. The many invitations you extended to me 
to represent the Alumni Association at the special events 
of your college chapters and clubs were greatly appreci- 
ated. My one regret has been that time did not permit me 
to attend all of them, for I made many new friends and 
observed many fine activities of your groups. 

The athletic department also added enjoyment to my 
year. I shall have many exciting memories of events I 
attended as a member of the Athletic Council. 

Last, but by no means least, has been the enjoyment 
experienced from the many courtesies extended to me 
by the administration. Although I served as your President, 
there were many occasions when 1 felt as though I were 
your queen. 

Another privilege that has been mine has been to serve 
with the new Director of Alumni Affairs, and it has been a 
very pleasant experience. One cannot assume the presi- 
dency of an organization without being influenced by what 
has existed in the past. However, when change occurs, 



one must consider all oi the implications, and it was my 
feeling that the new director be given every opportunity 
to understand and find direction. This has been accom- 
plished and a fine spirit of cooperation has existed in 
carrying out the endeavors of the Council and in project- 
ing plans for the future. 

1 am certain that my predecessors have all had the goal, 
and it is a continuing one, to develop good will and active 
participation among the alumni in supporting the Uni- 
versity in its many activities. We have tried to increase 
the interest of undergraduates in the programs of the 
Alumni Association through recognition awards and by 
supporting numerous projects. Efforts have been made 
to form new alumni clubs and to re-activate old ones. 
The Council has been represented on the Greater Uni- 
versity of Maryland Fund to develop means whereby the 
Alumni can better lend its support in helping to provide 
more non-committed funds for the many needs of a 
rapidly expanding University. We have increased our 
interest in alumni publications to expand avenues of com- 
munication with our alumni so that they may be better 
informed concerning alumni and Universit) programs 
and activities. 

It is difficult to evaluate objectively what has been done 
when one has been so closely associated with the activities. 
Possibly only time will decide what has been accomplished. 

In closing, I want to say that it has been a privilege 
to serve the Alumni Association and the University.

50 



years ago 



a transcontinental 
phone call took 23 



minutes to complete 





Installers of the first transcontinental line had to surmount hardships 
of windstorm, ice and scorching heat combined with rugged country. 



The first open wire line (linked here at the Nevada-Utah border) 
could carry only three calls and was vulnerable to interruptions. 



TODAY, WHEN YOU DIAL IT YOURSELF, THAT SAME CALL 
GOES THROUGH IN ABOUT 25 SECONDS (and costs about one-tenth the price) 




One of our newest routes is a 

blast-resistant cable that can handle over 

9000 multi-channel conversations. 



Telephone service has come a long way 
since that historic call in 1915. It has grown 
in scope from 9,000,000 phones and a single 
open line spanning the continent to 88,000,000 
phones and a huge network of several hundred 
thousand channels including 24,000 that cross 
the continent, via several different routes, 
from the east to the west coast. 

Accomplishment has been the keynote 
since the first coast-to-coast telephone call. 
Improvements in local exchanges and Long 
Distance circuits have led to better and more 
efficient telephone service. 

These developments have been effective in 
reducing the cost of calls. Fifty years ago, the 
cost of a three-minute call from New York to 
San Francisco was $20.70. Today, that same 
call costs you as little as $1. (Rate for 3-min- 
ute, station-to-station call, after 8 P.M. and 
all day Sunday, plus tax.) 

And still the future is full of promise. New 
phones will be introduced, technology will be 
improved and advances made that will open 
up a whole new world of communications. 




Today. 30.000 calls a day are completed quickly 
and easily between New York and the west coast 
and Long Distance is truly "the next best thing 
to being there."

TOWARD A NEW CONSTITUTION 

FOR MARYLAND 



by Dr. Elbert M. Byrd, Jr. 
Associate Professor of Goverment and Politics 



THERE IS A GROWING EFFECTIVE PUBLIC INTEREST IN 
the writing of a new Constitution for the State of 
Maryland. Although resolutions proposing a Constitutional 
Convention have been introduced in the General Assem- 
bly for many years, such a resolution received adminis- 
tration support for the first time in the 1965 session of 
the General Assembly. Also, in the 1965 session, there 
was administration support for the establishment of a 
Constitutional Revision Commission which would be 
charged with preparatory work prior to the calling of a 
convention. 

Both the Convention and Commission bills died during 
the end-of-session rush, but the adopted budget included a 
$50,000 item to be used to finance the work of the Con- 
stitutional Revision Commission. The Attorney General 
of Maryland has advised the Governor that he has the 
power to appoint a Commission by Executive Order, and 
that the $50,000 may be used to finance the work of the 
Commission so appointed. The Governor was strongly in 
favor of the creation of such a Commission by legisla- 
tive action. This June, he named 27 members to a Con- 
stitutional Revision Commission created by executive 
order. 

When reference is made to a growing "effective" public 
interest in the writing of a new Constitution, this is not 
to deny that there has been substantial general interest 
in the past. The present Constitution has provided that 



every twenty years the voters shall indicate whether or 
not a Constitutional Convention shall be called. The vote 
on the question was affirmative in 1930 and also carried 
affirmatively in 1950 by an overwhelming majority. The 
General Assembly repeatedly refused to call the Conven- 
tion, however, those opposed often relying on the argu- 
ment that although a majority voting on the question was 
for the Convention, this was not a majority voting in the 
election. In other words, those voters who retrained, for 
whatever reason, from making a choice in the matter were 
viewed as voting against the question. 

In the face of the repeated refusal of the General 
Assembly to call the Convention, and in view of the lack 
of support from the Governor's office in the past for a 
convention, why do the prospects suddenly brighten in 
1965? From the perspective of politics, there seem to be 
two main reasons. As to the sentiment in the General 
Assembly, the previous obstacle was principally due to 
the fear that a convention might well adopt a measure 
to reapportion the General Assembly. Now that reap- 
portionment has been directed by the judiciary and is 
to be brought about in any event, that cause for fear of 
a convention will soon be largely removed. Probablj 
more important politically is that in 1966. for the fust 
time, the candidates for nomination for Governor will be 
selected by state-wide popular vote in the primary election 
rather than bv the unit vote. Under the old unit vote 



September-October 1965 



Candidates for Governor will henceforth 
be elected by popular vote . . . the judiciary 
has directed reapportionment of the General Assembly 



system, a candidate who carried all the counties on 
the Eastern Shore would receive 35 unit votes even 
though the population of the area was only 240,000. 
A candidate receiving a majority of the popular vote 
in Baltimore County, with its population of over 500,000 
would receive only seven unit votes. If winning the 
election is the principal object of strategy, it can readily 
be seen that past candidates for Governor had no reason 
to make constitutional revision a part of their campaign 
platforms. The urban areas have been strongly in favor 
of constitutional revision. With the unit vote abolished, 
there is every reason to expect that candidates for Gov- 
ernor will be strongly for constitutional revision — assum- 
ing that winning the election is the principal object of 
strategy. It is with some confidence that it can be ex- 
pected that support for constitutional revision will eman- 
ate from what previously would have been very unlikely 
sources. 

Turning now to some general matters of substance, 
the question arises as to what is wrong with the present 
Constitution. It is perhaps best to approach the answer 
by dividing the problem into at least two areas, advanc- 
ing from the simple to the complex, or perhaps from the 
area where there would be most agreement to areas of 
most probable disagreement. 

There will undoubtedly be agreement that the present 
Constitution is far too long, including excessive legislative 
detail and a considerable number of archaic provisions. 

Such language as "every white male citizen . . . ought 
to have the right of suffrage," as contained in Article 7 
of the Declaration of Rights, would be changed without 
difficulty. Several sections of several articles now desig- 
nated "vacant" could certainly be removed. Such articles 
as XI-C, concerned with "Off-Street Parking" in Balti- 
more City, certainly would be eliminated. These are 
merely examples of miscellaneous chaff which any reason- 
able group of convention delegates would immediately 
agree to eliminate. It is probable that they would also 
agree to strike that provision in Article 3, Section 37 
which states that the General Assembly "shall adopt such 
measures, as they may deem expedient, to obtain from the 
United States, compensation for . . . Slaves, and to re- 
ceive, and distribute the same, equitably, to the persons 
entitled." 

Redrafting Maryland's Constitution will involve some 
disagreement over the structure of the executive branch. 
The main question revolves around the unification of 
power and responsibility. In short, where many executive 
officers are separately elected by the voters, the responsi- 
bility of each is diffused, and it is often difficult to pre- 
vent bickering and buck-passing between these officials. 
If, on the other hand, there is a single elected head of 
government, he is responsible to the voters for the per- 
formance of the other executive officials appointed by him. 
Omitting the office of Lieutenant Governor, only five 



states of the Union (New Jersey, Tennessee, Maine, New 
Hampshire, and Hawaii) provide for the election of the 
Governor alone by the voters, and authorize him to ap- 
point all other executive officials. The other extreme is 
Oklahoma which elects executive officials for seventeen 
agencies. Maryland is better off than most, selecting three 
executive officials by popular vote. These are the Gover- 
nor, the Attorney General, and the Comptroller. Drafters 
of a new proposed constitution for Maryland will have 
to deal with the idea that only the Governor and Lieu- 
tenant Governor for Maryland should be elected. 

In the highly complex field of judicial organization, the 
drafters will be faced with the problem of attempting to 
establish a uniform centralized system to replace the 
existing organizational chaos. The present system is so 
complex, involving a host of exceptions to almost every 
general rule, that a small book is necessary even to 
approximate a satisfactory description. Especially in the 
courts of limited jurisdiction, there is a bewildering 
variety of authority and organization from area to area. 
Some counties have trial magistrates courts, the authority 
of which is peculiar to each court. Some have People's 
Courts, each with its own special jurisdiction- — some hav- 
ing criminal jurisdiction, for example, and others having 
only civil case authority. Then there are the Orphan's 
Courts with some differences in practice and pay — ex- 
cept in Montgomery County where this court has been 
abolished by constitutional amendment. Baltimore City 
has a special Municipal Court. Although the variations 
are not as extreme at the Circuit Court and Appellate 
Court levels, there are many organizational problems 
there also, including a growing problem of overloaded 
dockets. Surprisingly, however, there may not be as 
much disagreement about the judiciary as in other areas. 
The American Bar Association and its affiliates are 
strongly in favor of what is called a uniform system of 
judicial organization. 

That part of the Maryland Constitution, Article 3. 
Sections 2 and 5, pertaining to apportionment of the 
General Assembly has been held invalid as contradictory 
to the United States Constitution. There will be agree- 
ment, therefore, that these provisions must be re-written. 
It is probable that the "one man, one vote" formula will 
have to be adopted. Much disagreement can be expected 
over the manner in which this formula is to be imple- 
mented. 

A two-house legislature can be retained, providing for 
representation in both houses on the basis of population 
equality. In that event, and especially if the county is 
retained as the basic unit of representation, the General 
Assembly will be larger in number than ever before in its 
history. There will also be conflict over the question of 
creating legislative districts within the larger counties. 

Although a two-house legislature is traditional in Mary- 
land, a unicameral or single-house body is an alternative 



The Maryland Magazine 



which receives an increasing amount of favorable com 
merit. It could be founded also on the traditional county- 
Baltimore City units of representation— in winch case a 
rather large legislature would result. New legislative dis 
tricts, in some cases including several small counties in 
a single district, would produce a smaller legislative 
body. Although this latter approach would overturn 
many ingrained customs in Maryland, it is fair to saj 
that customary structure is going to be changed in any 
event, and that a smaller unicameral body has much to 
commend it within the complex of problems lacing Mar) 
land today. It would be most valuable in that the reduced 
number of members of the legislature could be paid 
greatly increased individual salaries with little additional 
total cost, that they could thereby be virtually full-time 
legislators, putting an end to the scramble of incoherent 
activity so often seen in the attempts to beat the adjourn- 
ment deadlines of constitutionally prescribed short 
sessions. 

All structural aspects of government need review by 
those charged with providing a new constitution for Mary- 
land, but there is little doubt that the legislative branch 
deserves the main focus. In fact, if the legislature could 
be so structured that the public interest is always held 
supreme, and little if any incentive remained upon which 
special interest could be brought to bear, then short- 
comings in all other agencies of the government would 
receive sustained attention, and they would be corrected 
by legislation or constitutional amendment initiated by 
the legislative branch. For years, now, the more special- 
ized professional journals, particularly in the academic 
world, have bewailed the inadequacies of state legisla- 
tures, pointing out that the members of such bodies are 
the first to bemoan the drift of power to Washington 
while at the same time they refused to provide the efficient 
and responsive government necessary to maintain respect 
and loyalty to the governments at home. As the situation 
worsened, such criticism of state legislatures has now 
worked its way into the popular press and periodical 
magazines. These news stories and articles deal with 
the problem nationally, but Maryland's General Assembly 
is almost always mentioned. 

Sober notice is taken of the fact that the annual 
budget has increased from 67 million dollars in 1946 
to almost 800 millions in 1965, and that the adop- 
tion of this budget and the exaction of the revenue to 
support it is done under extreme pressure of time by 
members whose pay for the job is $2,400 per year and 
for whom research and administrative support is limited 
indeed. Meanwhile, the highest paid lobbyist this year 
received $35,973.75; others received such sums as 
$20,000, $15,000, and on down to many others who 
received more per lobbyist than a member of the legis- 
lature. These lobbyists are also backed by the most pro- 
fessional research and administrative assistance. Is it 
too much to conclude that the official representatives can- 
not adequately compete with the special interest repre- 
sentatives? Maryland citizens ultimately pay for both 
types of representatives. As of today, they face a situa- 
tion in which they pay to have the cards stacked in favor 
of the representatives of privilege and special interest. 

As presently constituted, the General Assembly can- 
not adequately cope with state problems, but many of its 
difficulties grow out of the practice of passing local legis- 
lation at the state level. Most of the bills introduced and 
considered by the General Assembly deal with one county 
or with Baltimore City. Those four counties (Anne 



Vrundel Montgomery, Baltimore and Wicomio 
sides Baltimore ( ity, which have gone through Uv cum 
bersome process ol adopting a Home Rule ( hartei under 
the provisions ol Article HA ol the Constitution, th 
counties cm pass a considerable amount ol local I 
Hon withoul going to the State House and, to some extent, 
die local legislation load is lightei than it would othei 
wise be. It is still i.u too heavy, and constitution draft 
will have io deal with the idea ol classification ol local 
units, providing that within each class the legislature ma) 
designate the specific subjects which ma) be dealt with 
in legislation passed In the local governing body. Local 
legislation by the General Assembly, as previous!) known, 
would no longer be authorized; legislation could be passed 

lor local units within a single Classification, but none toi 
a single unit. 

It will be proposed to the constitution drafters that a 
companion practice to local legislation, that ol local 
exemption, should be prohibited. I he practice ol local 
exemption, which is neither authorized nor prohibited 
by the present Constitution, involves a situation in which 
a representative from one area of the stale insists, in 
effect, that the public general law. i. c. state- wide law. 
must be amended so as not to apply to his area. His 
insistence is very often agreed to because, under the cus- 
tom, the other legislators will expect and receive a similar 
concession on other occasions when state-wide bills arc- 
proposed which are unacceptable to them for their areas. 
All this is called "legislative courtesy" or "Senatorial 
courtesy," depending on which house of the legislature 
happens to be dealing with the problem. There is some 
defense of the practice of exemption on the ground that 
good legislation has been occasionally passed which never 
could have passed unless one or more counties were 
exempted — that is, the argument goes, it is better to have 
good legislation applicable in half the counties of the 
State than in none at all. The view that such good legis- 
lation would never have passed without exemption can- 
not be proved or disproved. It is like saying that the 
runner on third base would never have scored if the 
batter had not been given the signal to bunt. In the 
absence of that signal, the batter might have scored a hit 
without sacrificing himself. What can be proved is that 
local exemption helps to create a patchwork of laws. 
What can be proved is that, as an example, an act ma) 
be criminal in one county and quite all right in the next. 
And there is considerable reason to believe that such a 
situation creates disrespect for the government of the State. 

The points discussed here are merely illustrative in 
broad outline of the problems to be faced by the drafters 
of a new constitution for Maryland, and ultimately to be 
faced by the voters of Maryland. Many other more specific 
problems are here left untouched. Coming to grips with 
the total problem is going to be a very difficult task — which 
is only another way of saying that making our Federal 
system work is a continuing task of great difficulty. The 
easy method is one of drift and postponement. For those 
who no longer care about the Federal system of govern- 
ment or wish to sec it replaced in practice by centralized 
national administration, they should continue to relax while 
looking upon the present development with considerable 
delight. For those who wish to save the Federal system or 
who think we should not give up just now on the prospect 
of reforming the state governments, they have a great deal 
of work to do. &

STEWARDS OF OUR 
NATURAL RESOURCES 

by Edison T. Blair, Editor 
Natural Resources Institute 



EXCEPT FOR SEVERAL MUDDY MEN AND SOME CURIOUS 
birds, Sandy Point State Park was deserted during 
the cold, windy, drizzling weeks of March. The men 
planted hand-high seedlings in the corners of squares 
formed by hundreds of white strings stretched at right 
angles between wooden stakes .... 

'"Say, Doc, I've got another funny looking oyster here. 
I'll bring it over for you to examine," a rubber-booted 
waterman in an Eastern Shore packing house said into a 
telephone .... 

In a well-lighted laboratory a woman beams a strong 
light across the watery film in a black pan, pausing to 
rake aside barely visible objects with a needle ... at 
a deer checking station, a man 
snips the jawbone from a hunter's 
trophy ... A valve turns and 
live steam hisses into a commer- 
cial canning retort. ... a scientist 
answers a waterman's question in 
an adult education class. . . . an- 
other corrects galley proofs for a 
scientific journal. ... a man, knee- 
deep in an icy mountain stream 
edged with the orange stain of acid 
pollution, scoops up a sample of the 
bottom . . . miles away in Chesa- 
peake Bay another man dredges up 
a half dozen blue crabs wintering 
in the mud of an estuary. 

Such routine activities make up 
the work day of the University's 
Natural Resources Institute. Hours 
at the microscope, data recording, 
analysis, and publication fill in the 
weeks and months. The Institute 

is responsible for a broad program of research and con- 
servation education on the State's nonagricultural re- 
sources, lis main concern is with fresh and salt water 
fisheries, seafood processing and marketing, estuarine 
studies, game animals, forestry, and water pollution prob- 




lems. The program aims at maintaining Maryland's well- 
earned reputation as a land of pleasant living. 

Early Maryland colonists told of magnificent hard- 
wood forests where trees were "so straight and tall that 
beams sixty feet long . . . could be made of them." 
Wildlife was so abundant that one colonist declined to 
describe "so numerous an extent of creatures." Deer 
were killed for sport because venison had grown tiresome 
and "nauseated our appetites." Rivers were clean, clear, 
and full of native fish. Chesapeake Bay was the world's 
largest and best fishing hole. For hundreds of years the 
Bay's succulent oysters spawned and grew fat in apparently 
inexhaustible numbers in the fertile waters. The muddy 
mollusk became one of the State's 
most valuable resources and an 
easily harvested economic asset. 

As stewards of this corner of 
Eden, Marylanders enjoyed the 
best of its God-given natural re- 
sources for more than two cen- 
turies. Then fish began to die in 
rivers polluted with the by-prod- 
ucts of civilization. Deer, bear, 
beaver, and turkey disappeared as 
man the spoiler consumed and des-

Entomology and Zoology in the early 1920's. Professor 



The Maryland Magazine 




R. V. Truitt, A&S '14, assistant zoologist, already studying 
oysters under the direction of Dr. Ernest N. Cory, was 
asked by the Conservation Commission to point his re- 
search toward restoration of the oyster bars. 

A temporary laboratory was set up in the parish hall 
of a church at Solomons Island in 1923. By 1925 Dr. 
Truitt had founded and been named director of the Chesa- 
peake Biological Laboratory there. The first of the present 
five-building complex was dedicated in 1932 by Governor 
Albert C. Ritchie. Goucher, St. Johns, Johns Hopkins 
University, Western Maryland, Hood, George Washington, 
and other colleges joined in the estuarine research. For 
ten years selected graduate and undergraduate students 
attended summer courses that blended education with 
scientific research. 




Research projects soon embraced practically every 
animal and plant in the Bay waters. The Laboratory staff 
branched out into inland game and fish studies, added 
forestry programs, and a conservation education division 
to serve teachers and the public. For 20 years — between 
the time the program outgrew the Laboratory and 1961, 
when it joined the University — this organization was aptly 
called the Maryland Department of Research and Educa- 
tion. 

Dr. Truitt continued to teach until 1943 and remained 
director of the Department until retirement in 1954. A 



lew months later, Dr. 1 I ugene ( ronin, K&S • who 
had left the Laboratory ii\ «.• years earliei to organize and 
direel a similai institution lor the l niversit) <>t Delawi 
was named director. Dr, ( ronin still heads the Institute 
which mm consists of foiu divisions. 

I he ( hesapeake Biological Laboratory al Solomons 
still carries the bulk of the Institute's research, not only 
because of us more ample facilities, bul also because ol the 
economic importance ol the Baj and its produ 
still the State's most valuable seafood, account foi one 
sixth of the more than 120 current research projects Data 
is still being collected on one ol the original studies which 
determined spawning and spat setting periods and led to 
present shell-planting practices. 

It was also the Laboratory's research and dogged edu 
cational efforts that led to present laws protecting the 
female blue crab which mates but once, yet returns from 
her .Atlantic Ocean hibernation areas three or tour times 
to spawn in Maryland's estuaries. Finfish research pro 
\ ides a basis tor conservation and management legisla 
don. Tagging striped bass (Rockfish) as thc> did mi 
ting crabs, fishery biologists learned much ol the Rock's 
spawning habits and lite cycles. Biologists pointed out 
that a female striped bass, which begins to spawn at 
around 15 inches, produces a greater number ol eggs 
each year until she spawns about 90,000 eggs at lull 
maturity. Now laws protect these 60-pound fish that can 
easily reproduce more than enough to till the fisher- 
man's creel. 

The Institute's 52-foot research vessel, the Orion, lilted 
out as a floating laboratory, is used regularly to collect 
fish eggs and larvae at dilferent depths in towed plankton 
nets. Preliminary sorting starts on board enroute to other 
areas to be sampled. A three-man research crew helps 
each other with the egg collection, a study of the Bay's 
ecology, and a study of the gases, sediment, and organic- 
matter contained in the water at various depths. Such 
teamwork is essential in the institute to assure 
maximum use of all the equipment. The Orion will soon 
be rigged with a deep-water clam dredge to collect more 
information on bottom areas inaccessible until now. 

When the World's Fair opened in 1965 the familiar 
hot dog stand at the Maryland pavilion had been replaced 
with a clam stand featuring deep-fried soft shell clams. 
This is part of the Institute's efforts to promote a broader 
market for this delectable denizen of Chesapeake Bay. 
More than 80 percent of Maryland's harvest of soft shell 
clams is consumed in New England. Soft shell clams take- 
five to seven years to mature in the cold New Hngland 
waters but grow to full size in only two years in the Bay, 
Institute research shows. University scientists have 
several studies underway on this Bay product which is 
steadily growing in economic importance. 

The blue crab, famous for its backfin lump, for main 
years could be enjoyed only in waterfront communities. 
Now it is found in markets all over the country, thanks 






to a pasteurization process in which the Institute's Sea- 
food Processing Laboratory at Crisfield figured prom- 
inentia This laboratory in the heart of Maryland's sea- 
sing area was established in 1954 by the 
Zoologj Department. When the Department of Research 
Education was reorganized into the Institute as part 
of the Universit) in 1961, the Seafood Processing Labora- 
uw\ became the Institute's fourth division. 

Biologists, chemists, and food technicians there are 
constantly searching lor more efficient and effective 
methods of processing and packaging seafoods; the cause 
and prevention of spoilage; and new food products from 
the Hay. The C'ristield laboratory provides an extension 
service for the packing industry by supplying complete 
information on its research into sanitation and processing 
techniques. Among the experiments now underway is 
an automated method of pasteurization and immediate 
quick-freezing of oysters, clams, and similar food by 
evaporating liquid nitrogen. 

Forestry, game, fresh water fish, and stream pollution 
are the concern of the Institute's Inland Resources Divi- 
sion. It operates out of the College Park campus office 
and an office in LaVale which is in the center of Mary- 
land's Appalachian region. 

For years Institute biologists have studied Maryland's 
native white-tail deer, once exterminated in all but three 
western counties of the State. The data collected on the 
deer's natural life span, food habits, disease and para- 
sites was made available to agencies that control its 
hunting. Deer are now hunted in every county in Mary- 
land. Other game research includes territorial range, nest- 
ing habits, diseases and parasites of squirrels, beaver, 
and other small game. Beaver, once thought extinct, are 
making a strong natural comeback in western Maryland 
to the delight of some and the chagrin of others. 

Fish studies range from pollution tolerance to species 
distribution and population in a constant effort to im- 
prove recreational fishing in Maryland. Recreation-minded 
Marylanders underscored the importance of this research 
in 1964 when they spent well over a million dollars for 
hunting and fishing license fees. There are thousands of 
square miles of tidal fishing waters in the State where no 
license is required. How much these people spent for 
goods and services in pursuit of their hobby is not known. 
But hunters and fishermen in the entire nine-state Appa- 
lachian area reportedly spent more than $350 million 
for goods and services in 1961. 




selected stands of white pine throughout the world. The 
object — faster-growing, disease and insect-resistant vari- 
eties, best adapted to Maryland's soil and climate. The 
foresters may not live to see the full fruits of this inter- 
national forest tree genetic experiment, but future genera- 
tions will certainly benefit from their carefully recorded 
data. Other forestry studies involve growth rates and 
hybrid development. 

Conservation Education with a staff of five is the 
smallest division of the Institute and its mission is obvious. 
Headquartered at College Park in order to maintain close 
liaison with other members of the faculty, an associate 
professor directs instructors at both Solomons and LaVale 
who work with the local school systems in their areas. 
They arrange tours, lectures, and exhibits for students, 
teachers, civic, and conservation groups. They also con- 
tribute to the educational material on conservation and 
natural resources prepared and published by the division. 
Editorial review of papers intended for scientific journals 
is coordinated through the division. 




Institute foresters in 1965 planted more than 15,000 
white pine seedlings grown from seed obtained from 150 



A six-week course in conservation of natural resources 
intended primarily for elementary and science teachers 
is offered in cooperation with the College of Agriculture 
each summer. The curriculum is carefully balanced be- 
tween lectures and field trips to provide the broadest pos- 
sible study in a limited period. More than a thousand 
Maryland teachers have attended this summer course. 

Some of the results of research and management studies 
dealing with the natural resources of the Bay area are 
published in the Institute's own quarterly scientific journal, 
Chesapeake Science. It is distributed both here and abroad 
to libraries, scientific institutions, laboratories, and con- 
servation agencies. Numerous other contributions to the 
world's scientific literature are made by Institute scientists 
in the results of their research published in other special- 
ized scientific journals. 

Each year this group of University scientists digs a little 
deeper into the biological and ecological secrets of nature 
to help man better understand, use, and enjoy his natural 
resources. In the past forty years these researchers have 
written the prologue to effective conservation. But the 
public interest demands that they redouble their efforts 
in the next forty years. By then twice as many people will 
be drawing on our already limited natural resources. 
Through this two-pronged mission of research and edu- 
cation the University has a vital role in assuring the next 
generation of Maryland citizens its natural birthrights. &

American and English Universities: 



A British View 



an interview with Richard C. Stevenson 1 

visiting lecturer of economics at 

the University of Maryland. 

edited by R. V. Eales 

University News Bureau, University of Maryland. 



W hat part do alumni organizations play in English 
university education? 

R.S. — As a matter of fact English universities are not very 
big on alumni associations; there is the old school tie 
system, but even that is breaking down. The reason, I 
think, why alumni are virtually inactive is because uni- 
versities get most of their funds from the government 
and have little incentive to keep in touch with graduates. 
Another thing, I believe, is that Englishmen don't look 
back with fondness and nostalgia, as Americans seem 
to, to their college days. 

You mention the old school tie system in relation to alumni; 
how about the other areas? For instance, are there degrees 
of status attached to particular English universities? 

R.S. — The academic profession, I would say, is a notori- 
ously snobbish one, and certainly in England, Oxford 
and Cambridge have a reputation that they don't en- 
tirely deserve any longer. Though it's only slight now- 
adays, there's a certain stigma attached to going to a 
provincial university. But nevertheless this is just pure 
snobbishness as far as I can tell. I've never heard an 
objective reason to support the view that the education 
at Oxford or Cambridge is any better than it would be 
at Hull, Sheffield or Leeds. The variation among 
English universities is less, I would say, than that 
among American universities. An English degree is 
pretty much an homogeneous commodity; if you've 
got a B.A., it's a B.A. But in America I get the impres- 
sion that it is where the B.A. comes from that counts. 



iRichard C. Stevenson has been in this country three years. He 
holds a B.Sc. (Econ.) from the London School of Economics and an 
m.a. from Stanford University in California. His home in England 
is in Long Eaton. Derbyshire. 




How would it be determined then that a student can get to 
Hull but not Oxford? 

R.S. — It is mainly dependent upon results in high school. 
However, some universities have departments which arc 
particularly good, and the competition to get into them i^> 
very high — so apart from doing well in high school, the 
student will also have to do well in special examinations 
set by the university concerned. 



September-October 1965 



117; the money for English universities come from? 

r.S. — It comes from appropriations from a central body 
within the Ministry oi Education called the University 
Grants Committee, but some universities like Oxford 
and Cambridge get considerable endowments from land 
and property they have accumulated over the centuries. 
The newer universities, though, get most of their money 
from the government with a little help from industrial 
anizations. But overall English universities work on 
verj tiehl budgets. It's a fact that the annual budget 
of Ni li. in more than the budgets of all the English 
universities put together. 




Is there the same rivalry in sports that is seen between some 
American universities? 

R.S. — The only mock rivalry exists at Oxford and Cam- 
bridge. These two compete in soccer, rugby, cricket 
and boat-race. But these are national events at which 
the gung-ho alumni may turn up wearing their school 
scarves and pretending they're thirty years younger. But 
the other universities don't go in for it. Sports though 
are generally different in English universities. You know, 
I was amazed to come here and find you have a coach 
for every sport, and secretaries and tickets being sold. 
At home students elect a captain for the sport and he 
picks the team while another student arranges the fix- 
tures — in fact the students just arrange the whole thing. 
I think that sport in American universities is just too 
professional. The ordinary chap can't go and represent 
his school; he has to be too good. I remember at London 
School of Economics we had five or six soccer teams, 
four rugby teams, three or four hockey teams and two 
cricket teams. All of these teams would compete with 
other schools according to the level of ability. So any- 
body, even the least competent, could represent his col- 
lege. I think a coach would have been resented — this is 
a student activity just like student dances are, and I 
don't think it's any business for university officials to 
meddle in. 



Who controls the universities in England? 

R.S. — Ultimately, the Minister of Education, and under 
him there's the University Grants Committee which I 
mentioned before. In addition, the university has a 
Chancellor who is a figurehead — the Chancellor of 
London University, for instance, is the Queen Mother. 
Then there is the Vice-Chancellor who is really the ad- 
ministrative head. But you see it's very different from 
American universities because the administration is far 
more inconspicuous. It seemed to me that the London 
School of Economics, which has five or six thousand 
students, was pretty much run by a Bursar, a registrar 
and two or three secretaries. 

With your experience of teaching here, what differences 
do you see between American and English students? 

R.S. — I'm very impressed with American students. They 
work a lot harder than English students, I think. The 
reason is partly because they have to, but they are also 
motivated much more than English students. I think 
it also has a lot to do with the different natures of 
American and English high schools. Everything comes 
back to the high school sooner or later; here it seems 
you get people coming from high schools, especially 
from rural areas, who have seen nothing and know 
nothing — and for eighteen-year-olds they are remark- 
ably ignorant. Then suddenly they get into the univer- 
sity and everything hits them. They realize what is going 
on in the world — and become very excited. I find it 
very rewarding to teach the American student, far more, 
say, than the English student who when he comes to the 
university at eighteen has already been doing some 
pretty sophisticated work in high school. In his last two 
years at high school he's been specializing in just three 
subjects and gets to a fairly high level. He's not excited 
by all this knowledge; it doesn't set him on fire like it 
does most American students I've taught. He tends to 
be a bit blase. 



Does it cost much for the English student to go to a 
university, and once he is finished what heights can he 
reach? 

R.S. — All schools are State supported in England and the 
tuition is very low. I think it's about $150 a year for 
any school. At Oxford and Cambridge it's about $180. 
Even so, most English students have scholarship assis- 
tance of some form. As to the second question you may 
recall that recently the Conservatives elected their leader 
for the first time ever. The constitutional and political 
implications of this are enormous. Just like an American 
child can dream of being President of the United States, 
it now seems possible that an English child can dream of 
being Prime Minister of Great Britain. A year ago, be- 
fore Harold Wilson became Prime Minister and before 
the Conservatives decided to elect their leader — this was 
not true for 99.9 per cent of the population. 

What's in the future for English universities? 

R.S. — The prospects are exciting. I think that sometime 
in the 1970's they intend to double the number of uni- 
versity students. You see the proportion of the popula- 
tion that goes to university is very low and the wastage 
involved is terrible. The problem, as I see it, is that 
we've been weeding out too many good people too early; 
there's not enough flexibility in the system. To get on in 
this world we've got to get more people into the univer- 
sities. Some of the problem has been with the 11 -plus 
which is an examination that pupils used to take at 11 
years of age to determine whether or not they are 
university material. Among other things, this examina- 
tion did not account at all for late-bloomers. It has been 
modified recently by the introduction of comprehensive 
high schools in which students are grouped, according 
to their ability, in the same school. Thus in this system 
students can move up as their ability increases. Even 
with this modification the wastage is still enormous, <£

Inside Maryland Sports 

by Bill Dismer 
Sports Information Director 



RANKED AMONG THE NATION'S TOP 20 IN MOST OF THE PRE- 
season polls, Maryland's football team opened its 1965 
season against Ohio University in Byrd Stadium September 25. 
A date with Syracuse, among the country's elite, the following 
week was to be one of the two highlights of the home season, 
the second being the nationally-televised game with Penn State 
on December 4. 

Although most of the experts picked our Terps to win the 
Atlantic Coast Conference championship, LOOK Magazine 
was an exception. Tim Cohane, the magazine's grid prognos- 
ticator, wrote: 'Although Maryland will have the best team in 
the Conference, a loss at North Carolina will cost it the 
crown."' Explaining his apparent contradiction of ranking 
Maryland 17th nationally while leaving Duke unranked, 
Cohane said Duke would win the ACC title but be undercut 
nationally by its usual non-Conference buzz saws ( Rice, Pitt. 
Illinois and Georgia Tech). 

Among those four, only Georgia Tech was ranked within the 
first 20 (No. 15). Maryland, on the other hand, is scheduled 
to play Penn State (No. 7) and Syracuse (No. 14). The figures 
in parentheses are Cohane's idea of where they will rate 
nationally. In one poll, Syracuse is ranked as high as fourth. 
Penn State eighth. 

Adding to the usual zest of the football season will be the 
operation of Coach Tom Nugent's "human scoreboard" — 
little Bernardo Bramson, raised in Chile, brought to the Uni- 
versity on a soccer scholarship but converted to football last 
year when he set an all-time school and conference record 
for kicking field goals. Bernardo is the young man who started 
this, and last, season wearing the No. "0" on his jersey, 
and had his number changed with every point he kicked (to 
correspond with the number of points he had scored). His 
field goal in the last quarter of the Oklahoma opener last year 
gave the crowd of 36,500 visions of an early-season upset, 
giving Maryland a 3-0 lead at the time. Two touchdowns by 

September-October 1965 



the Sooners in the last four minutes ol play, the hist a \ irtual 
"gift" from the desperate-to-score Terps. blasted the dream. 
A whole stack of uniforms in Bernardo's size, ranging from 
"1" to an unrevealed number, are now in the equipment room 
waiting to be worn by the modest kid who wound up wearing 
No. 44 last year. 



Two of Maryland's eight ACC championship teams, cross- 
country and soccer, swing into competition in October. Both 
are coached by Maryland's oldest (in point of service) 
coaches — the cross-country team by Jim Kehoe. entering his 
19th season at the helm of Terp thinclads, and the soccer h\ 
Doyle Royal, starting his 18th. Maryland not only never has 
failed to win the ACC soccer championship in the 12 years 
the conference has been in existence, but never has lost to an 
ACC team! Two ties are on the otherwise unsullied conference 
record. 

In addition, the Terps have participated in all six NCAA 
tournaments held, reaching the finals twice and the semi-finals 
three times. Maryland's record last year was 8-2 and both 
of the defeats came by 1-0 scores. Navy did it during the 
regular season on a penalty kick and Michigan State dupli- 
cated the score in the opening round of the '64 playoffs. Navy, 
incidentally, won the national championship by beating the 
Spartans in the title game, also by a 1-0 count. 

Of last year's team, nine lettermen return: James Dill. Duke 
DiPompo, Roy Eales, Gerald Hoffman. Aat Muys. Robert 
Newkirk, William Oxenham. Earl Shaub and Roger Stark. 
Four of the eight games on this fall's schedule will be played 
at College Park: with North Carolina State (October 4). 
Catholic University (October 12), Army (October 16) and 
Virginia (November 5). Road games will be played at Penn 
State, Duke, North Carolina and Navy. The playoffs are 
scheduled December 2-4. 



Six lettermen return to the cross-country team which had 
a 5-1 record last year. They are Stanley Arthur. Richard 
French, Charles Harris, George Henry. Charles Kocstcr. 
Milton Matthews and Charles Middleton. Last year marked 
the third time in 12 years Maryland has won the title. North 
Carolina has won six times, Duke twice and N.C. State once. 

The schedule: October 1. at Virginia; l >. North Carolina: 
16, at Duke: 23, at N.C. State; 30. at Navy. 

November 15. ACC meet at Wake Forest; 22. NCAA 
championships at Kansas.

Maryland was represented by 16 of the 131 ACC athletes 
who were cited on the ninth annual Honor Roll of Athletes. 
The conference awards certificates to students who averaged B 
or better in the classroom during the school year and who 
participated in a conference varsity event. 

Ramsay Thomas, Maryland's three gold medal-winner, was 
among those earning the honor for the third time, his full 
varsity career. Another Terp, Don Dunphy, the swim captain, 
was one of three practically tied for the highest grade, with 
a 3.78 in arts. 

Bob Kopnisky, our first national wrestling champion, was 
among other Terps cited. The complete list: Nelson Aurand 
(wrestling); Eberhard Klein (soccer); Mike George, Charles 
Harris and Lawrence Walsh (track); Jon Kreissig and Chris 
Sole (baseball); Bob Lewis (basketball); Lawrence Pearson 
(golf); James Williams and Raoul Rebillard (swimming): 
Steven Rosen (golf), and Bruce Springer (football). Jt 






Basketball workouts start October 15 and Coach "Bud" 
Millikan can hardly wait. Nine lettermen who gave him an 
18-8 record last season, his best since 1957-'58, will return 
and the outlook is bright. Three of the Terps' defeats last 
winter were at the hands of N.C. State, eventual ACC 
champions, the last coming in the semifinal round of the 
Raleigh tournament. Two other losses came in overtime, and 
another by two points. The courtmen had a fantastic second 
semester record, winning 14 of 17 including a winning streak 
of eight. 

Jay McMillen, the big, prematurely-graying forward who 
set a new scoring record for Maryland sophomores with 512 
points (19.7 average), and Gary Ward, who'll be a senior, 
head the returning cast. Neil Brayton, Jack Clark, Mike 
DeCosmo, Billy Franklin and Rick Wise all will be seniors, 
while Joe Harrington and Gary Williams will be other juniors, 
out to retain their starting positions. 

The Terps open their season at Penn State December 1 , and 
their first home game will be December 4 (Yep, the night of 
the nationally-televised football game wtih Penn State here that 
afternoon. Why not have your dinner at College Park be- 
tween the football and basketball games? Would save a lot of 
wear and tear on tires ... to say nothing of the trouble of 
having to park a second time). 

Major home games are with Georgetown, Navy and West 
Virginia, in addition to all the ACC foes. The Terps will fly 
into the mid-west in December to play at Kansas and Kansas 
State December 10 and 11. They also will play in the Sugar 
Bowl tournament at New Orleans December 29-30, along 
with Auburn, Dayton and Houston. 



Cole Field House will be the site of its biggest sports ex- 
travaganza yet, next March, when the semifinal and final 
rounds of the N.C.A.A. basketball tournament will be played 
here. But, alas! We can't hold out much hope for many who 
would like to see it. Although the seating capacity may be 
enlarged to 14,500, nearly 6,000 seats have been allocated 
already (to the nation's basketball coaches who will be hold-

Elected Head of DAV 

Establishing a strong program of assis- 
tance to wounded veterans through first 
hand contacts with hospitalized men will 
be the aim of the newly-elected National 
Commander of the Disabled American 
Veterans, Claude Callegary, ll.b. '50. 

His struggle to achieve an education 
during depression days, his military serv- 
ice which began 9 months before Pearl 
Harbor and a period of recovery follow- 
ing a plane crash in the South Pacific in 
1944 have all added to his appreciation 
of the duties of an organization dedi- 
cated to the needs of veterans. 

Mr. Callegary enrolled at the Uni- 
versity of Maryland in 1945, passed the 
State bar examination in 1949 and re- 
ceived his ll.b. in 1950. Senator Brew- 
ster, who nominated the National Com- 



mander, was in the same class and they 
took the bar examination together. 

During his days at the university, Mr. 
Callegary began his work on behalf of 
fellow veterans by founding a student 
veterans organization of more than 
5,000 members. At that time he joined 
Free State Chapter No. 16. He has 
since held every office in the chapter. 
served as Judge Advocate for the De- 
partment of Maryland and Senior Vice 
Commander and Commander. 

The senior partner in his own law 
firm, Mr. Callegary has established a 
distinguished record in the area o( 
negligence, compensation and labor law. 
In 1963 he received the Governor's 
Certificate for Distinguished Citizen- 
ship. 



During the past year, he visited everj 
state and traveled overseas seeking sup- 
port from D.A.V. chapters. In between 
transcontinental trips, he was in Wash- 
ington promoting legislation which 
would benefit the veteran. The remain- 
ing time he spends with his wife, 
Catherine, and their six youngsters. The 
family lives in Baltimore.

Alumnus Saves Child 

H. Wayne Wampler, A&S '63, son of 
Mr. and Mrs. Howard P. Wampler of 
Road 4, Easton, Maryland has been 
credited with saving the life of a three- 
year-old girl in Fort Worth, Texas. 

After little Caren Graham stumbled 
from the boat dock at Lake Worth and 
was discovered floating lifelessly in the 
cold water, Lieutenant Wampler applied 
mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. He con- 
tinued the procedure until the little girl 
revived. 

Lieutenant Wampler is assigned at 
Carswell AFB, Texas, as a munitions 
services branch chief. 

A graduate of Baltimore Polytechnic 
Institute, the Alpha Chi Sigma member 
was commissioned upon completion of 
Officer Training School at Lackland 
AFB, Texas. 

Code Translator Developed 

A simple solid-state code translator has 
been developed by Charles H. Popenoe, 
Engr. '57, at the National Bureau of 
Standards Institute for Basic Standards 
(U. S. Department of Commerce). The 
device developed by Popenoe, who re- 
ceived his degree from the University of 
Maryland in Aeronautical Engineering, 
can translate an eight-level bit configur- 
ation into any other eight-level code 
and may be switched to perform the 
reverse translation. The entire translator 
is self-contained in a small cabinet (19 
inches by 5 inches by 15 inches) and can 
operate independently of other equip- 
ment if necessary for checkout purposes. 

The translation is accomplished by 
two interconnected diode matrices, each 
containing 400 silicon diodes wired for 
a particular coding on plug-in circuit 
boards. Either matrix may be used as 
input or output, permitting bilateral 
translation with a single circuit rather 
than two. The reverse translation re- 
quires only a switched interchange of 
input and output connections. 

In its present form, the translator is 
connected between a paper tape reader 
and a tape perforator so that the infor- 
mation is read from the first tape, trans- 
lated, and simultaneously punched into 
the second tape in the new code. How- 
ever, the device will perform code con- 



version between any two pieces of digital 
equipment which will accept input and 
output information in parallel bit form, 
such as magnetic tape or teletypewriters. 
The adaptability of the machine is such 
that its vocabulary may be expanded or 
reduced as required and its use may be 
expanded through supplementary code 
boards.

half-time festivities. Graduates from 
various parts of the country and repre- 
senting a wide variety of occupations 
are drawn back to the University 
through their common interest in band 
music and the fellowship of playing to- 
gether again. Under the guidance of

Mater during the half-time show. 

During the year, the Band Alumni 
further support the band by stimulating 
local and State interest in the various 
programs of the University Bands. One 
of its most successful activities has been 
the sponsorship of band scholarships 
which are awarded high school musi- 
cians on a competitive basis. Each year 
the amount and number of scholarships 
have increased. It is the aim of this 
active group of alumni to keep building 
its scholarships so the University Bands

New Maryland Tax 
is Published 



Study 



A study on Maryland taxes has been 
published by the University's Bureau of 
Business and Economic Research of the 
College of Business and Public Admin- 
istration. 

Directed by Dr. Samuel B. Chase, Jr., 
the book is called, The Maryland Tax 
Study. 

It is designed to illuminate the magni- 
tude of fiscal needs facing the State and 
its subdivisions in the years ahead, and 
on tax resources available to meet these 
needs. 

Produced for use by the Commission 
on State and County Finance, the study 
provides factual and analytical material 
to serve as background for the Commis- 
sion's inquiry into fiscal problems faced 
by Maryland governmental units, but 
does not make specific policy recom- 
mendations. 

It is composed of three principal 
parts: Part I deals with the Maryland 
economy; Part II with government ex- 
penditure and revenue in the State; and 
Part III with the system of State and 
local taxation. 

The study foresees: 

• continued rapid growth of Mary- 
land's population, particularly in the 
Washington, D. C. and Baltimore metro- 
politan areas, 

• State and local government expen- 
ditures are projected to grow relative to 



the income „i the State's residents, con 
turning a trend ol recent years, 

• tax receipts al currenl tax rates are 
projected to rise loss rapidly, imply 
need for additional levies il the pro 
jected expenditures are to be made, and 

• among major tax sources, only in- 
dividual income taxes are projected to 
grow more rapidly, in percentage terms. 
than expenditures. 

The study notes the unequal fiscal re- 
sources of the subdivisions and their 
unequal expenditure requirements, and 
adds that the present system ol sharing 
State tax receipts with the subdivisions 
does little to iron out these discrepancies 

The implications of further tax-shar- 
ing, and of granting additional taxing 
powers to subdivisions to supplement the 
property tax also are explored in the 
study. 

The research was financed bv the 
State and the University.

Foreign Students 
at Maryland 

Each semester several thousand appli- 
cations from foreign students, or pros- 
pective foreign students, across the globe 
land on the University's admission desk. 

Last year the University had the sec- 
ond largest foreign student population 
in the Washington-Baltimore area. Un- 
dergraduate and graduate students total- 
ing 602 represented 72 countries. This 
Fall, more than 650 are enrolled. 

Asia supplies the majority, and physics 
is the most popular field for graduates 
with 81 students. Nine foreign students 
earned Ph.D.'s in physics last year, and 
21 percent of the total Ph.D.'s granted 
at the University were awarded to 
foreign students. 

On the undergraduate level the Col- 
lege of Engineering draws most, but this 
field just snips Arts and Sciences by a 
test tube. 

Where does it all begin? How does 
a student from Ecuador, for instance, 
happen to find himself eating a ham- 
burger in College Park? 

"People in other countries learn about 
the University and its offerings from ed- 
ucational publications such as that put 
out by the Institute of International Ed- 
ucation and from the more than 100 
overseas branches of the University," 
says Professor Furman A. Bridgers, 
foreign student adviser. 

Also there are orientation programs 
being developed abroad similar to one 
initiated by the Bureau of Educational 
and Cultural Affairs of the State De- 
partment two years ago in the United 
Arab Republic. 

Professor Bridgers was given a Ful- 



bright Scholarship to spend two months 
in Cairo "correcting misconceptions 
about American life, and educational 
structure." 

"Students had little knowledge of our 
educational system," said Professor 
Bridgers. He and another professor also 
conducted English language classes in 
Cairo. 

Once the student applies to the Uni- 
versity of Maryland, he is subjected to 
a thorough evaluation by the admissions 
office and by the Foreign Student Ad- 
viser's office. 

In addition to assisting with the job 
of screening, the orientation of foreign 
students and sorting out the many prob- 
lems which arise — from visas to 
housing — fall in the lap of Professor 
Bridgers. 

"Foreign student applicants are 
judged in terms of the academic work 
achieved in their own countries. Those 
with the best records are chosen since 
the University can only accept 500 non- 
immigrant students," Professor Bridgers 
explained. 

Consideration is given also to a stu- 
dent's proficiency in English. Tests are 
administered in U. S. consulates abroad 
to determine the student's knowledge 
of English. The results are transmitted 
to Professor Bridgers' office in College 
Park. The passing grade is 80. 

If a student makes between 75 and 
79, he may enroll in an English course 
for foreign students given by Professor 
Bridgers three time a week on the cam- 
pus to boost his knowledge of the 
language. 

Even so, for many students language 
is a problem. Some find it hard to digest 
so much reading material in so short a 
time. Consequently, many foreign stu- 
dents get off to a slow start, and take 
longer to earn their degrees. 

Foreign students are financed by their 
own resources, their family, or, in some 
cases, by their government. Only ten 
percent are financed by the U. S. Gov- 
ernment. 

Many students get themselves into 
financial tangles — "mainly through 
ignorance," says Professor Bridgers. 

"Some foreign students get the idea 
they can come here and work, but it's 
not as easy as that. First, permission 
must be obtained from the immigration 
authorities — but such permission is not 
guaranteed by any means." 

In some cases, however, a student's 
financial status is affected by other cir- 
cumstances. Marriage and babies head 
the list. 

Housing is sometimes a problem, and 
before the fall semester, Professor 
Bridgers, in cooperation with the hous- 
ing office, hires a housing assistant to 
canvass the area and make initial con- 
tact with landlords who have rooms to 
rent. 

"One of the housing assistant's tasks 
is to make sure there are cooking facili- 



20 



The Maryland Magazine 



ties for students who, because of their 
particular diets, have to cook," said Pro- 
fessor Bridgers. 

Out of Maryland's foreign student 
population, 390 are housed off-campus, 
52 are in dorms, 1 1 live in veteran's 
housing, two live in the faculty club, one 
lives in a fraternity, and the rest live 
with parents or sponsors. 

Generally, foreign students do as well 
as American students academically. 
"There is no difference in drop-out rates 
for either," reports Professor Bridgers. 

Socially, there is a tendency for Mary- 
land's foreign students to form groups 
based on nationality such as the Chinese, 
Indian and Ukrainian clubs. 

But much of foreign student social 
life is centered on the activities of the 
International Club and the People-to- 
People program. The former club's In- 
ternational Fiesta is a highlight of the 
year at which foreign students in na- 
tional dress show off their countries' 
products to the public within the atmos- 
phere of a grand ball. 

What do Maryland's students do 
when they return to their countries? 

Looking at one country, Iraq, it seems 
they do well. In that country the former 
Minister of Education, the present 
Director of Cultural Affairs and the 
Dean of Iraq's Law College all hold 
degrees from the University of Mary- 
land. 

Studies are underway to determine 
how many students do return to their 
own countries. So far only one percent 
of "J" students remain in the U. S. The 
"J" refers to a visa type which requires 
the student to leave the country when 
his study is completed. 

Another type is the "F" visa which 
allows a student to stay here 18 months 
after graduation. Of the students who 
enter with this visa, eight percent remain 
indefinitely in the country after gradua- 
tion. 

Newest School 
Enrolls 79 Students 

A Graduate School of Library Science, 
the newest professional school at the 
University, began its operations on 
September 13 with an enrollment of 34 
full-time and 45 part-time students. 

Dean Paul Wasserman said that a 
36-credit-hour sequence of courses lead- 
ing to a master of library science degree 
(M.L.S.) has been established. 

New faculty are: 

• Daniel Bergen as Assistant Profes- 
sor who comes to Maryland from Syra- 
cuse University where he was Assistant 
Dean of the School of Library Science; 

• Dr. Mary Lee Bundy as Associate 
Professor who comes from the State 
University of New York at Albany. She 
will offer instruction in the public library 
field and conduct research on public 
library problems in the State under ar- 
rangements made with the library ex- 



ALUMNI ! DON'T FORGET 
HOMECOMING, OCTOBER 23 



A University is Born 

by Margaret B. Ballard, M.D. 

First book to be published about the University of Maryland 
since 1907. To come off the press November 1, 1965. Over 
300 pages, illustrated and indexed. Limited edition, $7.50. Fill out 
the coupon below to reserve your copy. 

A charter was granted to form a University of Maryland in 1812 
which would be engrafted upon the Medical College of Maryland 
founded in 1807. For the next 108 years the College struggled to 
fulfill the requirements for a University. Finally in 1920 a true 
University was realized. A University Is Born is the story of 
these 108 years, telling of the trials and difficulties, the people who 
worked to make the institution possible, and the many FIRST 
things that were done by the early Faculty of Physiek. The growth 
of the University located at College Park, Maryland is traced from 
its earliest roots in the Cattle Fairs held in the middle 1700's to 
its merger with the University of Maryland in Baltimore in 1920.

Alumni Enthusiasm is Evident at Homecoming 



ALUMNI RETURNED TO THE COLLEGE PARK CAMPUS IN 
record numbers for Homecoming Day on October 
23. An increase in alumni interest and participation was 
evidenced as the grads took part in the many activities 
provided on their day. 

The morning period started with tours of the New 
J. Millard Tawcs Fine Arts and College of Education Build- 
ings where alumni hosts and hostesses from the respective 
colleges greeted the visitors, attractive undergraduates 
served as guides, and faculty representatives explained the 
numerous points of interest within the new buildings. For 
the athletic-minded, football film highlights were shown 
in the Student Union auditorium, a bowling tournament was 
held on the Student Union lanes, and the new Sporran 
(roll ( curse was the scene of driving, putting, and hole- 
in-one contests. 



The morning's registration period in the foyer of the 
Student Union Building was the focal point for meeting 
and greeting old friends. Coffee and cookies were available 
in an adjoining lounge. Hostesses were Dean of Women 
Emeritus, Adele E. Stamp, Mrs. L. B. Broughton, Mrs. 
Louise Schutz, A&S '48, Mrs. Tempe Curry Grant, Home 
Ec. '40, and Mrs. C. Read Madary, Jr., Home Ec. '58. 

Highlight of the alumni luncheon in the Student Union 
Building, attended by approximately 500 alumni and 
guests, was the presentation of the Association's Outstand- 
ing Alumnus Award to Jerome S. Hardy, BPA '39, 
Publisher of Life Magazine and Vice President of Time, 
Inc. The award, which was initiated on this occasion, was 
presented to Mr. Hardy by Howard G. Crist, Jr., Ag. '40, 
Chairman of the Council's Award Committee. The hand- 
some gold and walnut plaque cited Mr. Hardy for "recog- 



The Maryland Magazine 



nized success and significant contributions to the field of 
journalism and international communications.'" 

Other luncheon highlights were greetings by President 
Wilson H. Elkins, and Judge Joseph L. Carter, President 
of the Alumni Association. Musical selections were pre- 
sented by the University's combined men and women's 
choruses. Student leaders, including Mr. Ted Levin, Presi- 
dent of the Student Government Association, attended as 
guests of the Association. 

After lunch, the graduates filed to nearby Byrd Stadium 
to witness the colorful parade of 36 floats portraying the 
theme, "Maryland Reads the Comics." The pre-game cere- 
monies included the crowning of 21 -year-old Joan Quigley 
as Homecoming Queen, and the presentation of an 
alumni award by President Joseph L. Carter to Allen R. 
Hettleman, student Chairman of Homecoming, as recog- 
nition to the undergraduate who contributed the most to the 
success of Homecoming activities. 

The results of the football game with the "Wolfpack" 
from North Carolina State somewhat dampened the 
enthusiasm of some of the grads, as Maryland came out 
on the short end of the 29 to 7 score. 

Following the game, a large number of alumni and their 
friends attended the post-game social in the Student Union 
ballroom. Awards for the morning athletic contests were 
presented. 

That evening the young-at-heart topped off a busy day 
at the Homecoming Dance in the Reckord Armory. Music 
was provided by Morgan Baer and his orchestra and the 
Drifters. 

Following is a list of those Alumni who stopped by the 
registration desk at the Student Union on Homecoming 
Day, October 23. The list is arranged according to the 
year of graduation.

Although December 4 is the date most Terrapin supporters 
have had encircled for some time — the nationally-televised 
football game with Penn State in Byrd Stadium starting at 
1:30 and the first home basketball game at 8:15 in Cole 
Field House with Wake Forest — December 6 is taking on 
the aspects of one of the biggest nights in Maryland's 
home wrestling history. 

That is the night when Oklahoma, perennially one of the 
wrestling powers of the Nation, will come to College Park for 
the first time. My assistant and wrestling expert Bob Stumpff 
will be telling you all about the Sooner grapplers later on in 
this article. 

Prior to that, Maryland's swimmers will have formally 
opened the Winter sports season at home, being scheduled to 
meet North Carolina State in our pool. This is one of three 
home meets scheduled for the afternoon beginning at 4 o'clock. 
The two other meets in Cole will be held at night. Incidentally, 
the Terps will begin and end their season against two of their 
strongest rivals from the Tar Heel State, North Carolina being 
scheduled for the final home opponent on February 1 1. 

Basketball fans have reason to be excited over Bud Millikan's 
16th Maryland team, stocked as it is with nine lettermen, 
including the top seven from last year's squad. Led by Jay 
McMillen and Gary Ward, the Terps finished the 1964-65 
campaign with a rush, winning 14 of their last 17 games and 
finishing in a three-way tie for second place in the ACC. 
In compiling an 18-8 record, the best in seven years, Maryland 
was beaten only once by more than nine points, Duke taking 
an 82-64 decision down at Durham. McMillen & Co. got 
even for that one later on here in College Park when they 
whipped the Blue Devils, 85-82, before a capacity crowd. 

Three of Maryland's eight defeats were administered by 
the eventual Conference champion, North Carolina State, but 
every game was close. The first was a one-pointer here in early 
December, the second by a six down at Raleigh and the 
third in the tournament semifinal by nine. 

Great things are expected again of McMillen, the 6-7, 
215-pounder who set a record for College Park sophomores 
by scoring 512 points in 26 games (19.7 average). Coach 
Millikan tabs him and Ward, a senior, as ail-American 
potentials and the two finished one-two for scoring honors 
last year. Ward wound up with 469 (one point over an 18- 
point average). 

Starting with them will be another senior, Neil Brayton at 
forward, and two other juniors, 6-5 Joe Harrington and Gary 
Williams. The latter, although standing only an even six 
feet, was the best ali-around floor man and the quickest man at 
getting the ball down the floor that Maryland has had in 
years. 

Maryland was a good road team last year, winning nine of 
its 14 games on foreign floors, but must be an even better one 
this season if it expects to equal its 1964-65 record. Fifteen 
of the 25 games on the schedule are slated for out-of-town 
against such stalwarts as Kansas and Kansas State (to be met 
on successive nights in early December), Navy, Penn State 
and West Virginia. The opener with Penn State on December 
I should be particularly tough as the Nittany Lions will have 
back most of the veterans who gave them a 20-4 record last 
year and they will not have forgotten how Brayton's game- 
ending shot here last December left them on the short end of 
a 72-71 score. 



The Terps also have been invited to participate in the 
annual Sugar Bowl tournament in New Orleans during Christ- 
mas week and their competition there will be of the best. Two 
of the other teams, Dayton and Houston, were at-large en- 
trants in the NCAA tournament last winter, finishing with a 
22-7 and 19-10 record. Dayton has six lettermen returning, 
Houston seven. Auburn will be the fourth contestant. 

Maryland's biggest home games will come on December 7, 
against ACC champion N.C. State; December 15 against neigh- 
boring rival Georgetown; January 19 against Navy; February 
5, North Carolina; February 12, West Virginia, and February 
19, Duke. 

Two of the home games will be on regional TV (North 
Carolina and Duke) and will be played on Saturday after- 
noons, starting at 2 o'clock. 

Now let's read what Linn Hendershot, my swimming and 
track expert, and Bob Stumpff have to say: 

Headlined by all-American Phil Denkevitz, Coach Bill 
Campbell's Maryland swimming team opened its 1965-66 
season on December 1 against North Carolina State. 

Campbell in his ten years of coaching at Maryland has 
compiled a record of 84 wins and 24 losses. In the last six 
years, the Terp tankers have either tied or won the Atlantic 
Coast Championship. 

Denkevitz, from Baltimore, set NCAA freshman records 
with times of 21.0 in the 50-yd. freestyle and 47.3 in the 
100-yd. freestyle. As a sophomore, his time of 21.1 in the 
50 was second only to Olympic Champion Steve Clarke of 
Yale. 

Co-captains Eric Lampe and Bill Nullmeyer, along with 
Denkevitz form the nucleus for the 1965-66 team. Lampe, a 
senior from Erie, Pennsylvania, will be swimming the 50-yd. 
and 100-yd. freestyle and be on the same relay teams. Lampe 
is the President of the M-Club, the lettermen's association, and 
is a member of Phi Delta Theta fraternity. 

Nullmeyer, from Rockville, was the ACC 200-yd. freestyle 
champion and placed second in the 500-yd. freestyle. 



Jim Kehoe, the senior member of the Terrapin coaching 
staff, will unveil the University's 1966 Indoor Track team 
on January 8 when the Terps take part in the Richmond 
Invitational. 

Kehoe, in his 20th season, has won 32 Southern and 
Atlantic Coast Conference Track Championships since be- 
coming head track coach. Included among the 32 titles is the 
1965 cross-country championships. 

With George Henry and Dave Starnes pacing the Terp 
harriers, the Marylanders won the ACC cross-country title for 
the second year in a row. In practically every meet this two- 
some either tied or set a new course record. On October 8, 
Henry set a new Maryland record of 19:39 over the four- 
mile course breaking his old record set last year of 19:43. 

Starnes, a sophomore from Hendersonville, North Caro- 
lina, erased Henry's mark on October 30 against the Naval 
Academy with a fantastic clocking at 19:09.1. 

Looking forward to the indoor season, Maryland should have 
one of the most colorful teams in the East. Led by such 
standouts as Henry, Starnes and Frank Costello, the NCAA 
high-jump champion, Kehoe's tracksters aim to improve on 
last year's performance in which they had three NCAA 
Champions, five IC4A Champions, and 1 7 ACC Champs. 
The Terps also set 10 ACC records and 15 University records 
during the 1964-65 season. 



This year's wrestling team will be trying to live up to last 
year's, which finished ninth in the Nation for the second 
straight year, after being ranked ninth before the season. 
This was the first year ever a Maryland team had a pre-season 
ranking in the top ten. 

This year's team will definitely miss the three captains. 
Nelson Aurand, all-Americans Tim Geiger and Bob Kopnisky,

and John Bertinatti who graduated. But the squad will have 
more depth than the '65 team with nine lettermen reluming: 
Jim Arnoult, Olaf Drozdov, John Henderson. Bob Karch, 
Tom Norris, Tom Schleicher, Amando Soto. Milt rhomas, 
and Kent Webster. In addition five sophomores who were 
outstanding freshmen will be vying for starting positions on 




The Carmichael Cup, symbolic of athletic excellence in the 
Atlantic Coast Conference, is being presented to President Elkins by 
Mrs. Robert M. Lester, Jr. of Chapel Hill. North Carolina. Mrs. 
Lester is the sister of William D. Carmichael, II. who has donated 
the Cup in honor of his father, William D. Carmichael, Jr., one 
of North Carolina's all-time athletes. 

It was the third time in four years since the Cup has been in 
competition that Maryland has won it, this last time with a 
record-breaking number of points. Maryland won eight of the 12 
championships, finished in a second-place tie for another, a third- 
place tie for still another and a third and fourth-place. 

Below, coaches and captains are congratulated by Mrs. Lester 
and President Elkins.

Assateague Island Bill 
Signed; Dr. Truitt Attends 

Dr. R. V. Truitt, A&S "14, and former 
President of the Alumni Association, 
1961-62, was one of the invited guests 
and received two ceremonial pens from 
President Johnson in the White House 
recently when the Assateague Island 
bill was signed into law. 

Dr. Truitt, the first President of the 
Queen Anne's County Historical Society, 
has worked for the establishment of a 
national seashore for the area for 30 
years. In 1934 he went before Congress 
to discuss the founding of such a park. 
His own state representatives were not 
impressed, but the representative from 
Virginia was, and 
out of that came 
the founding of 
the wildlife sanc- 
tuary now in ex- 
istence on the 
lower part of the 
island located in 
Virginia. 

When the Pres- 
ident gave him his 
pen, Dr. Truitt 
asked if he could have another one to 
present to the Worcester County His- 
torical Society. The President immedi- 
ately handed him another. 

Cited as the last major stretch of 
pristine beach between Cape Cod, Mass- 
achusetts, and Cape Hatteras, North 
Carolina, Assasteague Island is the 
sixth shoreline tract marked for preser- 
vation in a natural condition by the 
Federal government. 

The project will halt private develop- 
ment of the 33-mile barrier reef and 
clear the way for public conservation 
and reaction. 

The island, with its white, sandy 
beach, is particularly well adapted for 
surf bathing and sunning and is within 
relatively easy reach of the mushroom- 
ing metropolitan areas of Baltimore, 
Washington, Wilmington, Philadelphia, 
and Norfolk. 

The wildlife refuge and the determina- 
tion of wildlife lovers to restrict travel 
inside its boundaries almost stalled the 
bill. However, Virginia backers of a 
proposal to run a road through that 
portion of the island won their point. 

As amended before final passage, the 
measure provides for a road to be built 
but with the exact location to be decided 
by the Department of the Interior. 

Under the bill, property owners who 
had built homes on the island prior to 
1963 would retain them for 25 years. 

The legislation authorizes up to 
$16,250,000 for acquisition of land, 
and as much as is needed for develop- 
ment of the island, which fronts on the 
Atlantic Ocean and is separated from 
the mainland by Sinepuxent and Chin- 
coteague Bays. 



The national seashore consists of 
39,630 acres of land and water. Of the 
19.096 land acres, about 9,453 are in 
Federal ownership, 922 acres are in 
state ownership and 8,721 are privately 
owned. 

The bill gives Maryland the right to 
acquire or lease from the Federal gov- 
ernment any of the island north of the 
area now used as a state park. It also 
sets aside a 600-acre area just south of 
the Maryland State Line for private con- 
struction of overnight and other public 
accommodations. 

The National Park Service said that 
in its development of the island it will 
determine fair market values and draft 
a master plan for swimming areas, 
picnic areas and other park facilities. 

A Park Service spokesman said that 
undoubtedly there will be some kind 
of marina for the accommodation of 
boats.

1903 Alumnus Practices 
Medicine in Massachusetts 

With typical New England directness 
and with the wealth of philosophy that 
comes from a long and contented life. 
Dr. Alston H. Lancaster, Med. '03, re- 
cently progressed to his 91st birthday. 

"I've been practicing medicine for 75 
years," he says with a smile and then 
explains that when he was still a 
youngster he made house calls with his 
hometown ( Bowdoinham, Maine) doc- 
tor who let him do a lot more than just 
hold the horse while the call was made. 

Medicine has been Dr. Lancaster's 
one ambition and at 91 he is one of 
the oldest practicing physicians in the 
country. He resides in Worcester, 
Massachusetts. 




"Why, I'd rather do that for $5,000 
a year than something else for $25,000 
a year," he remarks. 

A champion of the general practi- 
tioner. Dr. Lancaster feels that there 
should be more doctors who can sit 
down and talk things over with their 
patients. 

With but the slightest remnants of a 
earthy, heartwarming Maine accent on 
his lips, the doctor will tell you that he 
doesn't plan to retire. 

"When I get ready for that," he says 
with a wry smile, "I'll call the under- 
taker and see what he thinks. 

"If he thinks I'm ready, we'll make it 
the first of the week." 

Those friends who are also his patients 
find that his office is a mixture of med- 
ical paraphernalia and odds and ends 
he's collected as mementos for a long 
time. It would seem that he draws his 
patients and friends right into the inner 
circle of his experiences — he'll tell you 
stories and show you pictures of the 
sulky horses he used to raise in Oxford 
and Greenfield, and of his hunting he'll 
recall with utmost honesty the time he 



and a guide were temporarily lost in the 
darkness ol the tall Maine woods 

Then when you're leaving the homes 
offices on the lirst floor ol his old 
brick home, he'll show sou his "novels," 
a half-dozen different editions ol the 

Bible. He's read (his hook ovei and 
over again. 

Dr. Lancaster would like to heal from 
other classmates ol the '03 era He 
may be reached at 997 Mam Street, 
Worcester. Mass. 



History of the University 
Now Available to Alumni 

The University's history emerges m lull 
this month with the publication In the 
Maryland Historical Society ol Prof. 
George H. Callcott's long-awaited book. 
A History of the University of Marx- 
land. 

Six years ago the University's His- 
tory Department, persuaded of the rela- 
tively unknown richness of the institu- 
tion's past, recommended that this book 
be undertaken by a member of the 
faculty who would be given free access 
to all University records and a com- 
pletely free hand in interpreting the 
material. The Department recom- 
mended creation of a faculty committee 
to offer advice, but emphasized that the 
author must be solely responsible for 
the book that finally resulted. President 
Elkins and the Board of Regents ac- 
cepted these recommendations, and Dr. 
Callcott, Assistant Professor of History, 
was asked to undertake the project. As 
an independent scholarly project, the 
book was never subjected to censorship 
or approval of any kind.

A HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 

by George H. Callcott 

Associate Professor of History at the University 



In a book of scholarship and wit Professor 
Callcott presents the story of the institution 
from the establishment of Washington and St. 
John's colleges as the "first" University of 
Maryland through a forthright and understand- 
ing treatment of recent controversies. It is the 
full history of the University since 1907. Based 
on complete access to all University records, 
supervised by a committee of historians, the 
book was never subjected to "censorship" or 
official "approval." 

Professor Callcott skillfully captures the 
unique personality of the University and its 
grand traditions. By relating events on the cam- 
pus to developments in thought and politics, he 
contributes to the social and intellectual history 
of the State. He views today's University of 
Maryland as one of the strongest and most 
promising educational citadels in the world. 



The author narrates: 

• the stories of some of the first and finest of 
American professional schools — Medicine, 
Law, Divinity, Pharmacy, Dentistry and 

Nursing; 

• the development of the institution at College 
Park from a college for the sons of aristo- 
cratic planters, through the impact of Civil 
War and industrialization, to new ideals of 
democracy, public service and excellence. 

• the evolution of student life — from serious 
scholars hiding from hostile mobs, to second- 
hand Confederate uniforms, to raccoon coats, 
big-time football and today's post-Berkeley 
mood. 

• the spectacular and controversial age of 
"Curley" Byrd; 

• the present drive for quality in the midst of 
quantity. 

About 450 pp. plus index and 16 pp. of illustrations. 
Special prepublication price — $7.00, postage and sales 
tax included; price on publication $8.00 including 
postage and sales tax. Ready in December.
